The FCB-EV5500 Color Block Camera is a model with HD (720/60p) performance with 30x optical zoom lens


  • The FCB-EV5500 achieves crisp HD 720 picture quality.
    The high-performance 1/2.8-type ExmorTM CMOS image sensor achieves superb Full HD (1920 x 1080) picture quality, even in low-light environments. Progressive scanning assures smoother pictures with reduced blur - ideal for capturing the detail in moving images.
  • Fast, bright lens with rapid 30x optical zoom
    The high quality lens offers a bright F1.6 maximum aperture and 30x optical zoom range. Fast zoom operation (from wide end to tele) is ideal for smooth, rapid transitions from wide area coverage to detailed close-ups in security and surveillance applications.
  • Get a steadier picture with image stabilizer
    The camera’s built-in image stabilizer function counters the effects of blurred, shaky images caused by low-frequency vibration. It’s useful for outdoor surveillance and traffic monitoring applications where the camera may be subject to wind or mechanical vibration such as on a bridge or mounting pole.
  • StableZoomTM
    Image stabilizer and optical/digital zoom are combined to enhance picture quality while maintaining the original horizontal angle of view, ensuring no compromise in image size and reduced blurring.
  • 2D/3D Noise Reduction
    Advanced noise reduction technology filters noise from the image for clearer results, especially in low light conditions. Noise reduction can be selected from five levels to suit a wide range of operating environments.
  • See more clearly with Visibility Enhancer and De-fog
    Picture quality is enhanced dynamically and adaptively on a pixel-by-pixel basis while continuously adapting to the scene within the given dynamic range. There’s also a de-fog feature that allows clearer viewing in foggy or misty scenes.
  • Wide dynamic range
    Wide-D image processing technology gives the ability to see clear detailed images in high-contrast or backlit environments. For the FCB-EV5500, enhanced processing now supports an exceptionally wide 120dB dynamic range method (HD 720 resolution) for even greater clarity.
  • Clear vision round the clock with Day/Night
    Benefit from optimized picture quality in changing light conditions – a frequent challenge in round-the-clock security operations. In high sensitivity mode the camera can operate effectively in lighting levels as low as 0.25 lx (ICR on).
