ZC3-505-o2 USB 3 Digital Video Camera by Zarbeco

An ultra-compact, scientific quality camera for machine vision or microscopy, the ZC-505-03 is fully UVC compliant (including DirectShow) so it is compatible with the hundreds of programs which already support this popular standard.

The 2592 x 1944 pixel array updates at 15 frames/sec at full resolution or 30 frames/sec. at 1920 x 1080 pixels over USB3. The camera is backward compatible with older computers that have a USB 2.0 port -- running at a lower frame rate.

Since the ZC-505 is fully powered from the USB 3 port, it is the perfect choice for mobile imaging applications.

The ZC-505 camera includes Video ToolBox Pro software, which provides full control over the camera, an easy-to-use interface for image capture, and advanced labeling, annotation and measurement features. Additional software provides advanced control of the exposure, including automatic or manual control of gain and exposure, white balance, and image integration for low-light imaging.
