Best-in-class minimum illumination
Considering the importance of recognition ability for surveillance cameras, noise reduction (NR) control and colour reproduction have been particularly enhanced. As a result, while striking a balance among noise, resolution and colour reproduction, color is still visible even in low light conditions up to 0.95 lux / 0.5 lux (B/W) (with 1/30 shutter speed) with excellent minimum illuminance.

Auto Smart Shade Control
Auto Smart Shade control adapts to changing lighting conditions. The light and dark areas of the scene are analyzed, and exposure and darkness compensation levels are automatically adjusted for optimum exposure compensation to suit changing conditions.
