Other Information

The FCB-EV7520A autofocus zoom camera from Sony features 30x optical zoom. The back-illuminated Exmor R sensor with 0.01 lx minimum illumination enables you to capture high-fidelity images even in very low-light scenarios.

This new advanced camera block is a direct successor to the FCB-EV7520 and provides an upgrade migration path for the 720p FCB-EV5500 and 20x Optical Zoom EV series variants. The FCB-EV7520A is equipped with a 30x optical zoom lens and builds upon the market leading specifications of the well regarded FCB-EV7520. Among other functions, the camera module inherits a multitude of features from Sony’s world-renowned FCB Series including VISCA command protocol, Advanced Noise Reduction, Auto ICR, Spherical Privacy Zone Masking and Wide Dynamic Range. These market leading features are suitable for a variety of demanding applications.
