Stingray – Versatile FireWire camera

Not for new designs

Last time buy: 2024, August 31 | Last time shipment: 2026, August 31

Stingray F-504 with Sony ICX655 runs 9.0 frames per second at 5.0 MP resolution.

The Stingray offers a particularly wide range of functions and image optimization options – for example, shading correction and low-noise binning mode. Thanks to its modular and flexible design, it is a particularly versatile high-performance camera for a wide range of applications. It is also available in board level and compact versions. Extreme distances can be bridged with the optional optical fiber interface.
