Ultra-compact, inexpensive high contrast VGA camera with HDR mode

The Guppy F-036B/C is an ultra-compact, inexpensive VGA camera for applications with high contrasts. It is equipped with a CMOS sensor by Micron/Aptina which supports the HDR mode (High Dynamic Range mode). At full resolution, it runs at up to 58 fps. Higher frame rates can be reached by a smaller AOI.
