When the FCB-H11 HD Block Camera from Sony is released, it is going to be ideal for many applications especially when it comes to the higher end Security Applications.
Although it will be virtually identical to the popular FCB-H10, the addition of the Auto ICR and the increased sensitivity (less than 1.5lux) opens doors in the security market for anyone looking for a High Definition, Auto Iris, Auto Focus, Controllable, high resolution, day/night camera.
Users of standard definition cameras that have the Auto ICR will finally be able to upgrade to High Definition without giving up the black and white, high sensitivity mode once the new HD block camera is released.
Camera is anticipated to be available Q3 of 2008.
UPDATE – 10/10/2008
*Camera is now available for purchase
