The maximum frame rate of 41 FPS @ 1920x1200 becomes 100 FPS @ 640x466 (equivalent to 1/4" sensor) using ROI (Region of Interest) up to 145FPS has been achieved so far.

The is supplied with Drivers, Genika Astro Image Capture Software and a 2m USB3 Cable. Optionally the camera can also be supplied with a GPIO to 12V socket power lead which allows the camera to be powered from a battery for maximum noise reduction.
