Point Grey introduces New Sony IMX264 and IMX265 Global Shutter CMOS

Point Grey announced the addition of new 3.2 and 5 MP CMOS models to its Chameleon3 USB3 Vision and Blackfly GigE Vision camera lines. The latest Chameleon3 and Blackfly models feature Sony’s 2nd generation Pregius sensors and set a new benchmark for global shutter CMOS by reducing pixel size and lowering temporal dark noise. The smaller 3.45 µm pixel size allows more pixels to be packed into a smaller optical format, allowing a wider variety of more compact and lower-cost lenses to be used.  The new Sony Pregius IMX264 and IMX265 sensors offer the same impressive imaging performance as the higher-speed IMX250 and IMX252, but at lower frame rate and lower cost.

The Chameleon3 CM3-U3-31S4 and CM3-U3-50S5 as well as the Blackfly BFLY-PGE-31S4 and BFLY-PGE-50S5 models are available to order now from Point Grey, its network of distributors, and the online store (for North American, EU and Australian customers).
