Combined with enhanced optical zoom achieve a high image quality from the Wide end to the Tele end. High Sensitivity Through introduction of new cell structures and circuit technology, the series efficiently uses light, achieving twice the sensitivity compared to conventional image sensors. Consequently, clear images can be captured even during the night and in dark environments. Super Image Stabilizer Enables capturing of highly precise video with reduced blurring even in harsh environments with strong vibrations by greatly improving blur suppression and image stabilizer. The camera is during full HD or HD output equipped with the Super and Super modes. Applying a wide correction area using 4M pixels the camera series suppresses blurs from strong vibrations and rotational vibrations compared to conventional models. Super Suppresses strong vibrations with a wider correction area compared to conventional electronic vibration suppressors. Super + By employing a wider correction area than “Super,” “Super+” suppresses intense vibrations that cannot be suppressed with “Super.” Potential application: Shipboard, attachments for ITS surveillance, on bridges, drones, vehicles, etc. Starvis 1/1.8-type CMOS sensor The Sony FCB-9500H Sony blockcamera is equipped with an approximately 417 million- effective-pixel, 1/1.8-type high sensitive, AR-coated (anti-reflective coating) CMOS sensor. With a high spectral sensitivity value in near infrared to infrared, it is especially effective for security uses. Furthermore, the AR coating minimizes the ghost phenomenon and enables capturing of images without missing crucial information even during the night and in dark environments. 30x Enhanced Optical Zoom Using a compact lens designed for resolutions up to 8M the camera maximizes the coverage of the 4M sensor. The newly designed lens provides high resolution and low aberration, making it capable of capturing high resolution images that span from the Tele end from the screen center to the surrounding edges. There is no image deterioration using the 30x enhanced optical zoom. Experience full sharpness and dramatically reduced chromatic aberration in full HD output and also achieve images with sharp resolution during 4M output. Flare reduction with the new iris Diamond flares and ghosts that occur on lenses disrupts focusing and deteriorates the image quality. The new lens adopts 7 blades compared to the conventional 2 blades, improving this phenomenon by generating fine circular flares, and thus greatly improving image quality. Color image acquisition during ICR ON On conventional models, only black and white images are achieved while the IR cut filter was removed. The new ICR ON COLOR function enables the camera to capture shots with color even when the IR cut filter is removed. It is effective for color visibility in dark environments. The precision of color reproduction varies depending on the light source and brightness. Spot Focus · Spot AE · Spot AWB Enables functioning of AF, AE, and AWB only in specified areas within the screen. Enables independent specification of any rectangle of the entire screen divided in 6 x 8. For example, if the subject location is specified with Spot AE, enables capturing of images with Exposure effects reduced even if brightness changes occur outside the specified frame. Adjustable ROIs Screen divided in 6 x 8 Wide Dynamic Range (Wide-D) Wide-D mode is a function for dividing an image into several blocks for correcting blocked-up shadows and blown-out highlights in accordance with the intensity difference. It enables image acquisition in which portions ranging from dark to light can be recognized, even when capturing a subject with a large intensity difference that is backlit or includes extremely light regions of interest.
