Point Grey Research Inc.’s next generation of Flea3 cameras offers a choice of eight Sony progressive-scan CCDs in monochrome or color, and FireWire-b (800 Mb/s) or Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mb/s) interfaces. Housed in a 20 x 20 x 30-mm cast metal case and weighing 58 g, the cameras include an enhanced optoisolated eight-pin general-purpose input/output, an on-camera frame buffer, nonvolatile user data storage and new trigger modes. Features include a C-mount lens holder, on-camera color processing and automatic white balance. Multiple cameras networked on the same IEEE-1394 bus are automatically synchronized to within 125-μs maximum deviation and can synchronize across buses using proprietary MultiSync software. The FlyCapture software development kit is compatible with Microsoft Windows and Linux Ubuntu.
