SX800 - Camera de surveillance longue distance 40x Optical Zoom

New product


Long-range surveillance
40x optical zoom

Licensed by TOKYO TOWER

The SX800 is equipped with a 40x optical zoom lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths from 20mm on the wide angle end to 800mm on the telephoto end. It is complemented with 1.25x digital zoom to achieve long-range surveillance equivalent to 1000mm in focal length.

More details

The SX800 is a long-range surveillance camera for the video surveillance market. The system incorporates two high-performance elements, a full HD camera and a 40x optical stabilization zoom lens. This innovation is the result of many years of experience in the digital camera industry and a commitment to the highest optical quality. With its powerful 1 / 1.8 "image sensor, wide focal length range - from 20mm to 800mm - and state-of-the-art image processing technology, the SX800 is ideally suited for aerial surveillance .

Security needs are growing in modern societies. Surveillance cameras with large focal lengths are not exclusively dedicated to the treatment of sensitive places such as border surveillance; they are increasingly integrated with public infrastructure such as airports, seaports and highways.

Long-range surveillance systems face multiple challenges. In fact, the smallest optical vibrations with a large focal length can compromise the sharpness of the images. Mists of heat or fog also affect their quality. Focusing too slowly also results in loss of important safety information. Through the development of a fully integrated camera and lens system, the SX800 offers relevant solutions to minimize impact.

Combined with high-quality optical zoom, this lens has a powerful optical and electronic image stabilization mechanism. It allows an angular correction of up to ± 0.22 degrees. Built-in high-speed autofocus delivers a crisp, well-defined image in less than a second, while a fog filter and heat-mist reduction technology help prevent weather hazards.

The system delivers images of constant sharpness of objects located several kilometers away. In addition, the integrated design of the SX800 reduces the important adjustment work that is usually required when installing a camera.

A recent promotional video from Fujifilm shows how well the camera is able to read a pocket sign at a distance of 2.2 km, while the video above shows the camera in the course of accurate map of the Observation platform of the Tokyo Tower at 3 km. Another promotional image shows how the camera can focus on the license plate of a car at a distance of 1 km. See below:

High-performance image stabilization

New image stabilization system

The SX800 combines optical image stabilization (OIS) and electronic image stabilization (EIS) to accurately compensate for camera shake, typically caused by gusts and footing vibrations at the site of camera installation. The system is particularly effective when shooting in the ultra-telephoto range, which is susceptible to even the slightest of shakes.

High-performance EIS

In the EIS mode, the SX800 uses a sensor large enough for its lens’s effective diameter to secure full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), thereby delivering footage of premium quality. The combined use with OIS also improves the durability of the image stabilization system substantially.

Use of new devices

The SX800 sports high-precision gyro sensors to accurately detect minute vibrations that could not be detected previously. The use of newly-developed high-thrust linear motor delivers an advanced level of accuracy and tracking performance.

New ceramic bead roller system

The SX800’s OIS uses a unique “ceramic bead roller” system. Ceramic beads, processed in ultimate precision, minimizes friction and resistance to achieve advanced responsiveness and excellent durability in image stabilization.

High-speed AF system

On-sensor phase detection AF

The on-sensor phase detection AF uses phase detection pixels across the sensor to instantaneously measure distance according to the displacement of incident lights. The SX800 also offers “contrast AF,” which detects areas of high contrast in images at high accuracy, and automatically switches to the optimum AF setting.

  • 2. Color filter
  • 3. Phase detection filter
  • 4. Phase detection pixels
  • 5. Photo diode


Rear Focus mechanism

The use of the Rear Focus mechanism has significantly reduced the weight of the focusing lens group. This has also dramatically increased the focus drive speed to enable “continuous AF.” Users can choose between “Continuous AF,” “Quick AF” and “Manual Focus” according to the conditions where the camera is used.

Image processing technology

Low light conditions

The use of the highly sensitive sensor and the effect of advanced noise reduction mean the SX800 can shoot clear footage with minimal noise even in low light conditions.

Fog reduction

The SX800 uses a unique imaging technology to bring vivid clarity to hazy images caused by light diffusion with airborne mist droplets and dust.

Heat Haze reduction

The SX800 uses a unique image processing technology to reduce the shimmering effect of heat haze, caused by large difference in atmospheric temperatures, to make the entire images easier to see.

Simplified setup

Cameras with built-in lens

Conventional surveillance systems require the adjustment of optical axis and flange focal length when mounting a lens on a camera. The SX800, which carries a built-in lens, is shipped with such settings optimally adjusted to bring out maximum performance. The design also eliminates the need for complicated wiring, thereby significantly reducing man-hours at the time of installation.

New design with advanced rigidity and portability

The SX800’s aluminum extrusion body is highly rigid and exceptionally robust. A carrying handle* may be attached to the body, using screw holes at the top, for transporting convenience.

* FUJIFILM does not offer a carrying handle.
