    Does it support 30 FPS YUYV at 1080?

      Unfortunately USB2.0 is maxes out at 5FPS in YUYV mode at 1080 resolution.

    Great to see this comparison chart. I am very much looking forward to buying a Kurokesu camera.

      Glad to hear Ray! Actually samples from sample assembly can be already ordered. Documentation is still being prepared though.
