Point Grey has added a new 1.3 megapixel Sharp CCD model to its Blackfly family of GigE Vision™ cameras. The latest Blackfly BFLY-PGE-13H2 camera models are based on the Sharp RJ33J4CA3DE (mono) and RJ33J3CA3DE (color) 1/3” global shutter CCD sensors. Sharp Corporation has developed a proprietary CCD technology that provides improved sensitivity and image quality, and its unique microlens design collects light more efficiently resulting in improved quantum efficiency in the visible and near infrared regions. “Sharp’s image sensor business has seen significant growth this year and we’re excited to expand our product portfolio with additional Sharp CCD sensors”, says Michael Gibbons, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Point Grey. The BFLY-PGE-13H2 is Point Grey’s lowest priced Blackfly camera to date, available to order now from Point Grey, its network of distributors, and the online store.
