SONY XC-505 Color Video Camera (Replacement for XC-555)




The XC-505 and XC-505P are ultra-compact and lightweight color video cameras incorporating a high sensitivity,high-performance 1/3-type Super HAD II CCD.Compared to Sony's popular XC-555 camera, the XC-505and XC-505P are equipped with several new features including one-push white balance, noise reduction(2D/3D), a built-in color bar, DTL function, and RS-232Csupport.

These cameras use an NF lens system which can easily be converted into a flexible C-mount lens. What's more,they are easily integrated into space-restricted environments thanks to their one-piece compact and robust body.

The combination of first-class picture quality with superb sensitivity for less-than-ideal lighting conditions makes these cameras well-suited for a wide range of applications such as remote monitoring, security, content creation, machine vision, and sports shooting.
