Point Grey (Richmond, BC, Canada) recently introduced the new Blackfly camera. The first model BLFY-PGE-13E4 features a 1.3 MP, 60 fps, CMOS global shutter sensor available in both monochrome and color, and less than 2W power consumption. The BFLY-PGE-13E4 model uses the EV76C560 CMOS sensor from e2v, which uses a global shutter readout architecture. The CMOS pixel design addresses blooming and smearing artifacts caused by bright sources or reflections in the camera’s field of view. Point Grey’s Blackfly camera measures just 29 x 29 x 30 mm and provides a unique set of features including power over Ethernet, temperature and status monitoring, in-field updatable firmware, color interpolation, look up table, gamma correction, pixel binning functionality, and much more. Future Blackfly models include 0.5 and 0.9 MP CCD resolutions with excellent quantum efficiency and wide dynamic range.
