Sony’s new FCB-IX C color block camera series are equipped with an auto focus integrated lens and incorporate high-performance Digital Signal Processing (DSP) that provides for enhanced picture quality and operability compared to conventional block cameras. The new FCB-IX47CP color block cameras incorporate a 1/4-type Super HAD™ CCD and are equipped with an 18x zoom lens. The FCB IX47CP cameras also feature a minimum illumination of 1.0 lux – expanding their vast appeal.

The ultra-compact FCBIX47CP color cameras incorporate a 1/4-type EXview HAD™ CCD and feature a 40x zoom ratio (10x optical, 4x digital) making them ideal for space restricted applications. Inheriting the outstanding features of the previous generation of Sony block cameras, these FCB-IX cameras are ideally suited for numerous general purpose applications such as low vision systems, mobile police cars, pipe inspection, photo booths and document stands.
