FireWire family grows

The Grasshopper IEEE-1394b (FireWire) 800Mbit/s digital camera line now offers 11 monochrome and color models to address demands for high resolution, high frame rate, and/or high sensitivity. The five new models are based on three additions: the high-sensitivity Sony ICX414; the high-resolution, cost-effective Sony ICX267; and the high-speed Kodak KAI-0340DM.

With these additions, the Grasshopper gives users a choice of resolution (0.3 to 5 Mpixel), frame rate (up to 200 frames/s, VGA), sensitivity (square pixels up to 9.9 µm), and price (US$1195 to $3495). Each model is available in a 44 × 29 ×58-mm form factor with dual IEEE-1394b ports, general-purpose I/O connector, and industry standard C-mount lens holder.
