Sony’s FCB-EV7520

Sony’s FCB-EV7520 Low Light Block Camera

Sony has expanded the FCB-EV Series camera block line-up with the introduction of the high-quality and high-sensitivity camera— the FCB-EV7520.

The introduction of this Sony FCB-EV camera continues to enhance the already mind-blowing camera series, and it is guaranteed to get even better in the future.


  • ½.8 CMOS image sensor (approx. 2.14 million effective pixels)
  • Operative in low lighting levels (0. 1 lx)
  • Minimum Object Distance: 10mm( wide end) to 1200mm (tele end). Default is 300 mm
  • Horizontal viewing angle
    • 1080p 63.7 degrees (wide end) to 2.3 degrees (tele end)
    • 720p 63.7 degrees (wide end) to 2.3 degrees (tele end)
    • SD 47.8 degrees (wide end) to 1.7 degrees (tele end)
  • Crisp and Clear Full High Definition Picture Quality image (1080/60p)
  • Rapid 30x optical zoom
  • StableZoomTM
  • Video output: Digital
  • Dimensions 50x60x89.7 mm
  • Image stabilizer
  • Shutter speed: 1/1s to 1/10,000s
  • Sync system- internal
  • Power consumption: 3.2 W (zoom focus/ inactive) and 4.0 W (zoom focus active)

This FCB-EV Series camera incorporates Exmor R™ CMOS sensor that allows Full-HD video with unprecedented levels of sensitivity, making it possible to produce images in the worst lighting conditions.  The STRAVISTM technology also allows high-quality images in near-infrared light and visible light.

This block camera also offers a 30x optical zoom range and a bright F1.6 maximum aperture. It allows for fast zooming that is ideal for smooth operation. This makes it suitable to capture images that require rapid transitions— from wide cover-ups to close-ups. For companies that use this product, this means they have the best security and surveillance.

The camera just gets better and better. Sony’s FCB-EV7520 built-in image stabilizer and the StableZoomTM combine to eliminate blurred and shaky images that are a result of low-frequency vibration. Yet it allows the horizontal angle view. Hence, there is no compromise on image size.  This makes it the best appliance for outdoor surveillance and traffic monitoring applications because in both these situations the camera is susceptible to wind or mechanical vibration.

The FCB-EV7520 is an integration of the new and the old, making it the best new thing. It inherits the features of the old FCB-EV series. These features include the VISCA command Protocol, Auto ICR, Spherical Privacy Zone Masking, Advanced Noise Reduction, and Visibility Enhancer. The companies that make use of this equipment get the best of both worlds.

This block camera is the smallest of the other Sony block cameras. It weighs 9 ounces. The compact size and the 50x60x89.7mm dimensions make it the best for many organizations and companies that already use it.

The FCB-EV7520 is the solution for system integrators and vision system manufactures. Not only is it cost-effective, but it also allows integration with “GigE vision”.

The FCB-EV5720 promises to be better in the future. Despite its compact size and amazing features that benefit many organizations, Sony is also focusing on FCB-EV7520A. While we cannot really comment on its performance, it is worth mentioning that its electronic magnification will be increased by 16 times and its magnification even more. All of this will further enhance its vital role in engineering applications and many other fields.
