Sony FCB-EX980SP 26x High Telephoto Zoom Color Block Camera (PAL)


[Product may be available in limited quantities. Contact us for price/availability.]


The FCB-EX980S camera combines a new incredibly high 26 times zoom and Auto ICR capability with a 1/4 type Super HAD™ CCD using Sony's image stabilization technology. The FCB-EX980S camera features a powerful 26x SMART lens that is "tele-shifted" toward the telephoto end of the zoom range to provide the highest TELEPHOTO zoom capability (1.6° H-FOV) available in the Sony FCB family. This camera is ideally suited for use in security domes and traffic monitoring applications.


  • 26X Zoom Lens - High Telephoto Zoom and Wide Horizontal Field of view capability
  • Upgraded 3-D "Sperical Privacy Zone Masking" - Incorporating latest generation firmware, this FCB camera features an "advanced privacy zone masking" function for use with a pan/tilt system. The masking blocks can be interlocked to track with pan/tilt/zoom even when the camera is panning in a tilted position or circling.
  • New "Smart" Lens Control (Sony Modular Automatic Lens Reset Technology) - incorporates SMART lens control technology which monitors lens focus position during zooming and automatically compensates for mechanical misalignment which may occur over long period of continuous usage.
  • Compatible Mounting Hole Positions - has the same mounting hole positions as the FCB-EX480B/480BP and FCB-EX48/EX48BP cameras, allowing them to be easily interchanged.
