Wide range of uses
Border and port surveillance, construction site surveillance, etc.
The SX series allows for long range surveillance of many vital areas such as borders, harbors, maritime, airports and vital infrastructure facilities. In addition it is also possible to shoot small and fast moving targets such as drones using the ultra high speed AF.
for Disaster Prevention
Detecting disasters such as forest fires, flood, and eruptions
The SX series allows you to take advantage of the telephoto performance to quickly confirm and monitor disasters such as forest fires, flood & eruptions from a safe & remote location. This could prove vital when human lives may be in harms way.
Wind turbine inspection&Transmission line inspection, etc.
Thanks to high operational accuracy the inspection of objects can be made quickly & reliably. Our SX series gives a greater advantage to "visual inspection." This cuts down on man hours and improves safety of employees in some cases.
Taking advantage of the characteristics of the SX, a new image expression
The long range capabilities of the SX series can provide a new expressive style in a wide range of "entertainment" fields such as long-range photography, astronomical observation, sports & sightseeing spots that are limited by conventional cameras.
Surveillance, Inspection of high places and dangerous areas are also telephoto
The wide range of focal lengths including super telephoto makes the inspection of high altitudes or dangerous areas more safe versus conventional inspections conducted by people.
High-performance image stabilization
Compatible for use on vehicles and in windy conditions
As you can see in the video, our high performance optical stabilization greatly reduces blurring in natural settings such as surveillance from a tower, inspections on the sea or monitoring a forest.
Shooting in the dark
Supports nighttime surveilance and inspection
The SX can shoot an object in low light without an illuminator. When used with an illuminator the object can be seen even more clearly.
High speed AF system
Detect objects at high speed
High speed auto focus allows the SX to capture objects at a very high rate of speed. The camera is also equipped with continuing AF that tracks objects of interest.
Vivid correction with original image processing technology
When fog is present and making scenes challenging to see with the naked eye the SX series possesses unique technology that can easily cut through the fog and correct the scene.
New model born after SX800
Longer range? No problem the new SX1600 covers a focal range from 40mm wide-angle to 1600mm on the telephoto side. The digital zoom allows you to cover a range up to 3200mm.
First generation SX
The first generation SX camera covers a focal range from 20mm wide-angle to 800mm on the telephoto end. The digital zoom takes you all the way out to 1600mm.
