Point Grey's New Grasshopper®3 USB3 Vision™ Camera Features 2K x 2K CCD for Scientific Imaging

Point Grey, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, today announced the addition of a new 4.1 megapixel global shutter CCD to the Grasshopper3 family of high quality, high resolution USB 3.0 cameras.


The new Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-41S4 models are based on color and monochrome versions of the Sony ICX808, a 1/1.8" global shutter EXview HAD CCD II sensor featuring 3.1 micron square pixels, and capable of 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution at 18 FPS. The Sony ICX808 EXview HAD CCD II sensor provides excellent quantum efficiency of over 72% and its unique square aspect ratio makes it ideal for scientific applications such as microscopy and ophthalmology, and industrial applications such as AOI and electronics inspection.

Like all Point Grey USB 3.0 cameras, the Grasshopper3 uses a proprietary USB 3.0 link layer and frame buffer-based architecture for optimal performance and reliability. The Grasshopper3 uses an advanced image processing pipeline to enable look up table, gamma correction, pixel binning and USB3 Vision support.

We are excited to expand our Grasshopper3 USB3 Vision camera lineup with the latest sensor technology,Applications such as ophthalmology rely on a square aspect ratio and will therefore benefit from the full resolution of the Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-41S4 camera.

Michael Gibbons, Director of Sales and Marketing at Point Grey


The Grasshopper3 GS3-U3-41S4 is list priced at $1,495/€1.195 and is available to order now from Point Grey, its network of distributors, and the online store (for North American, EU and Australian customers).
