Blackfly S Mono 1.3 MP USB3 Vision

The new Point Grey BFS-U3-13Y3M-C series leverages Sony's Pregius global shutter CMOS technology designed to fulfill the promise of global shutter CMOS: crisp, clear, distortion-free images at high speeds.  

The IMX252 sensor features a smaller and very popular pixel size of 3.45 µm; the smaller pixel size is balanced with lower Temporal Dark Noise to maintain Pregius’ outstanding imaging performance. 

Featuring 1.3 MP on a USB3 interface and a small 29mm x 30mm size make it the perfect solution to an array of applications and industries.
