Point Grey has added new models to the Blackfly family of ultra-compact PoE GigE Vision cameras.

The new Blackfly models use Sony Exmor CMOS sensor technology, which combines the speed of CMOS with the low noise, high dynamic range, and high saturation capacity of many of today's CCDs. The BFLY-PGE-14S2C-CS features a colour IMX104 1/3-inch CMOS rolling shutter sensor capable of 720p resolution at 60fps, and boasts a full well depth of 19,000 electrons. The BFLY-PGE-23S2C-CS uses a colour IMX136 1/2.8-inch sensor capable of 1080p resolution at 27fps, and offers dynamic range of almost 70dB. Both models deliver excellent colour fidelity, very low temporal dark noise (4e-), and support long exposures up to 30 seconds.

Like other Blackfly models, these new cameras support cable lengths of up 100 metres using Gigabit Ethernet, are compatible with third-party imaging libraries via the GigE Vision standard, and provide a host of features including Power over Ethernet, temperature and status monitoring, in-field updatable firmware, colour interpolation, look-up table and gamma, and much more. With their unique combination of imaging performance, 29 x 29 x 30mm size, and low price, the Blackfly models are perfectly suited for applications in machine vision and factory automation; scientific applications such as astronomy, microscopy and biophotonics, as well as visualisation applications such as video conferencing and kiosk imaging.
