AT SecTech Roadshow's Camera Shootout in Melbourne we got a look at something special – something that installers, integrators, end users and consultants get a another chance to see in Sydney this Monday, May 16 – Sony's new SNC-VB770, a camera with UHD resolution and low light performance down to 0.004 lux.
The SNC-VB770 offers low light performance under 0.004 lux thanks to an enormous ISO of 409,600, which allows signal amplification that's strong enough (yet controlled enough) to make for shutter speeds fast enough to truly capture motion in low light. The new SNC-VB770 camera achieves high resolution and sensitivity, in addition to low noise and high ISO, due to its image processing and full-frame 35mm Exmor sensor.
Does this combination make a difference in low light? It sure does. The Sony SNC-VB770, which is a prototype never seen tested outside of the U.S., impressed everyone not only with its low light capability but thanks to it's ability to freeze detail of movement in the scene, giving face recognition and LPR in colour in sub-2 lux. The VB770 dealt with Ronnie Rotakin bettter than any other camera at the show. What's so important about this combination of operational outcomes from Sony's prototype is that it suggests in the future investigators will be empowered by cameras offering court admissible images in seriously low ambient light.
Just to make our adventures in low light more interesting in Sydney, we'll get to see the new Sony alongside the Canon ME20F-SH full frame 2.26MP 1080p multipurpose camera, which has an ISO of 4,560,000, and we will be comparing these harbingers of the future with the very best 1080p and 4K cameras available today.
