Pricing available upon request

Sony is expanding its miniature-sized FCB camera line-up with the introduction of the FCB-IX11A color block camera. The FCB-IX11A camera features a 1/4 type EXview HAD™ CCD and high sensitivity of 1.5 lux (50 IRE). The FCB-IX11A camera inherits all the outstanding features of Sony's popular FCB-IX10A camera such as the same Digital Signal Processor (DSP) for high image quality, 10x optical zoom, built-in field memory and updated firmware to enhance its operability. Measuring only 1-9/16 x 1-13/16 x 2-5/8 inches and weighing less than 3.5 ounces, the FCB-IX11A is ideal for space-restricted applications such as pipe inspection, photo booths and document stands.
