Point grey has announced that two upcoming Grasshopper3 USB3 Vision cameras will feature Sony's second generation Pregius global shutter CMOS sensors. These new sensors, the IMX250 and IMX252, are the highest resolution Pregius sensors to date.

The pixel sizes have been reduced to 3.45µm to enable higher resolution and support smaller optics made popular with the ICX625 and ICX655 sensors. According to the company, Pregius' imaging performance is maintained by lowering temporal dark noise.

Supporting USB 3.0 and GigE with Power over Ethernet, these cameras are suited to a wide variety of demanding applications including flat panel inspection, 3D measurement, ophthalmology, flow-scanning cytometry, and fluorescence imaging.
