Ordering Info

The Sony FCB-EV7520 and -EV7520A cameras are now end-of-life. Please contact sales for remaining stock and alternative products. We recommend the Sony FCB-EV9520L as their improved successor.

The FCB-EV7520 and -EV7530A autofocus zoom cameras from Sony feature a 30x optical zoom lens. The back-illuminated Exmor R sensor with 0.01 lx minimum illumination enables customers to capture high-fidelity images even in very low-light scenarios.

Both cameras provide an upgrade migration path for the 720p FCB-EV5500 and 20x Optical Zoom EV series variants. The FCB-EV7520/EV7520A offer many sophisticated camera functions. Among others, the camera modules feature 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.
