Point Grey Research - Flea3 1.3MP Monochrome USB 3.0 (Vita 1300) Camera


USB 3.0 Benefits

The USB 3.0 interface used by the Flea3 camera provides guaranteed delivery of critical image data using USB 3.0 (5 Gbit/s) bulk transfers.

Ultra-compact USB 3.0 Camera

At 29x29x30mm, the Flea3 fits into the small, tight spaces that are common in industrial imaging, making it an ideal camera for OEM applications. The USB 3.0 connector with locking screw holes not only guarantee a reliable connection, but also reduce stress on internal electronics that can be caused by cable movement. The cable also carries both data and power, minimizing the need for additional cables or external power sources. 

Triggering and GPIO

The Flea3 camera has an 8-pin GPIO connector located on the back. The opto-isolated pins allows the user to coordinate the camera with external devices such as light sources and GPS units. It can be programmed to accept external trigger signals that initi-ate the start of exposure, output variable strobe patterns, or send and receive serial data. 


The FlyCapture® SDK is included with all imaging products. The SDK is compatible with Microsoft Windows (32bit and 64bit). It includes de-vice drivers, software Application Programming Interface (API), demo programs and C/C++ example source code.


Tripod adapter with every camera. All the accessories you need to get up and running, such as interface cards, cables, and power adapters are available from Point Grey.

Industry Standard Mechanics

Every mechanical component of the Flea3 is designed to maximize usability, including the compact cast metal case, CS-mount lens holder and ASA/ISO-compliant tripod mounting bracket, status LED and removable glass/IR filter system.
