Hi Andraz,

We've been happy with the AVT Mako series, it's about the same size as the BlackFly, a bit more expensive, but we've never had any issues with freezing etc. when running with aravisGigE. The one we have most experience with is the Mako G234B:

Thanks,
Tom

> BFLY-PGE-23S6M-C
> 1/1.2" sensor, global shutter, 1920x1200 pixels
