Tiny body, immense potential: with a weight of only 12 grams and extremely compact dimensions of 26.5 x 23 x 21.5 millimetres, the uEye XS camera is one of the smallest in the Vision market. Its fast autofocus is a special highlight among the numerous auto functions. It delivers consistently sharp images starting from distances of only 10 centimetres.
The XS combines the simplicity of a consumer camera with the application capabilities of an industrial camera. Thanks to its 5 megapixel OmniVision CMOS sensor and helpful functions such as automatic white balance, automatic exposure and autofocus, the camera delivers excellent images even in difficult lighting conditions.

In JPEG mode, the model delivers 15 frames per second and up to 30 fps at reduced resolution. In addition, eight freely selectable and easily switchable image formats from VGA to 5 MP are available. In combination with the integrated JPEG compression, the mini camera is also suitable for video streaming with 720p (HD-ready) or 1080p (Full HD). It can therefore be used in a variety of ways, for example in medical or security technology, in transport and logistics or as a component for kiosk systems.

Strikingly crisp images!

Thanks to practical autofocus

The integrated autofocus optics ensures constantly sharp images from a distance of only 10 cm. If required, the focus can also be controlled manually using the free IDS software suite.
The software function "Adjustable focus range" allows users to freely select the focus range. This enables them to determine the position of the measurement window within the image themselves.

Consumer comfort for industrial applications!

Sharper and more visible

From automatic white balance and automatic exposure to auto gain and autofocus, the XS delivers the best images in every situation. Adjust the sharpness of the image, e.g. edge enhancement, individually to recognize even more details. By activating the mirror function, you can mirror your images horizontally or vertically.

Extremely compact!

Perfect for embedded systems

With a weight of only 12 grams and tiny dimensions of only 26.5 x 23 x 21.5 millimetres, the XS fits anywhere. Thanks to its lightweight, compact design, the uEye XS can be easily integrated into embedded systems. Other areas of application include medical and security technology, transport and logistics, and kiosk Systems.

Embedded systemes

Typical scenarios are the use in portable systems for quality control, in diagnostics, in scanners or drones.

Small device construction

Compact and powerful - IDS cameras can be easily integrated into small devices such as handheld scanners or other portable systems.


Image processing can be used, for example, to record visitor numbers and customer behaviour and carry out entrance controls.


Imaging systems can be found e.g. in self-checkout systems and reverse vending machines and provide support for shelf inspection.

Kiosk systems

IDS cameras are used in self-checkout systems as well as in reverse vending machines and ATMs.
