Sony XC-505 Miniature Color CCD Camera

CODE: XC-505


DISCONTINUED:  This product has been discontinued by the manufacturer with limited stock available.  Please contact for availability.

The Sony XC-505 is the replacement for the popular Sony XC-555.  The XC-505 uses a very sensitive 1/3-type Super HAD II CCD.

The sensor in the XC-505 has enough sensitivity to maintain picture quality even when the scene you are capturing turns a little dark.  The camera is super small and very lightweight.  The XC-505 is a one-piece camera measuring only 22 (H) x 22 (W) x 75 (D)mm with no need for a bulky CCU (camera control unit). The XC-505 utilizes an NF lens system, which can be easily converted into a flexible C mount lens.

Remote monitoring?  Security?  Machine vision?  Sports shooting? The XC-505 has what you need.
