FCB-MA130 camera

Share this on social media:

An ultra-compact, all-in-one colour camera which supports both video and still images has been added to the FCB Block camera series from Sony, and is now available from Stemmer Imaging. Incorporating a 1/2.45-type Exmor CMOS sensor and Sony’s original image signal processor, the FCB-MA130 camera enables users to capture full HD resolution (1080p/30) movies and up to 13 megapixel (4,192 x 3,104) still images.

Developed from mobile phone camera technology, the FCB-MA130 uses a piezo actuator module for focus over a range of 100mm to 8mm. Both manual focus and a ‘one push’ autofocus are provided. The micro-camera measures 16.5 x 10.3 x 18.0mm meaning it can be used in a wide range of space-restricted applications.

Sony’s original image signal processor provides adaptive tone reproduction for a wide dynamic range, real time embedded image stabilisation and face detection to enable the system to be implemented easily in security and industrial applications. It also features a range of exposure controls and white balances, 3DNR noise reduction, and a 60 step, 16 times digital zoom. It can be used in light conditions over 4 lx.
