CANON will show its ME20F-SH camera at SecTech Roadshow Camera Shootout. The camera features an EF lens mount and the ability to capture Full HD colour video in 0.0005 lux.
At the core of the ME20F-SH is a 2.26 megapixel CMOS sensor, which has massive pixels measuring 19um – 5.5X larger than the pixels found in high-end DSLRs. This allows for 1080/60p/30p/24p (and PAL equivalent) video capture in light levels as low as 0.0005 lux at a maximum gain setting of 75Db, which is equivalent to around 4.6 Million ISO. As with the company's professional cinema cameras, Canon Log and Wide DR modes are available for capturing a wide dynamic range.
The ME20F-SH supports EF and EF-S lenses with a locking mechanism and autofocus support. There are built-in neutral density and IR cut filters, both of which can be disabled if desired.
ME20F-SH has output-only 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI ports and both a 2.5mm mini-jack and an 8-pin RS-422 port for using Canon's remote controls. There's also a 3.5mm jack for a stereo mic, as well as GENLOCK port for synchronizing multiple video sources. A microSD slot is used solely for firmware updates. The camera can be controlled on an external monitor using an HDMI output. Click here and register for SecTech Sydney to see the ME20F-SH ♦
