The u-cam 552 camera uses the highest-quality 1/3'' CCD Super HAD II from SONY, which is an improved version of the SONY CCD Super HAD sensor. SONY Super HAD II sensor is characterized by a considerable improvement in image quality over its predecessor. It is mainly better color and brightness reproduction of the scene in low-light conditions. Below there are images from cameras with the two types of the sensors.

By using a very good SONY sensor and with the possibility of setting image parameters in the camera MENU, the images are of the highest quality. The camera produces a natural-color rendition of the original scene and, thanks to a high resolution of the video (550 TVL), it is possible to distinguish fine details. Due to high sensitivity (0.1 lx), the camera can successfully operate in low-light conditions, providing color images without visible noise.
The camera has been specially developed for daylight, from dawn till dusk, as well as for night operation in the visible light. It is not recommended for cooperation with IR illuminators. Both with natural and artificial lighting, the camera ensures very good image quality, with sharp edges and natural colors. Increased sensitivity can be achieved by switching the camera to black and white mode.
The camera cooperates with C/CS lenses, and supports both DC and Video auto iris. The camera has the ability to adjust focus by setting the precise distance from the sensor to the lens. If the camera should operate with an IR illuminator (not recommended), the lens has to provide IR correction - the image will be sharp during the day and at night.

Some JENSEN lenses suitable for the camera:
  • M21401 - JENSEN 3.0 - 8.0 mm DC F1.0
  • M2136 - JENSEN 2.8 - 12 mm DC F1.4 with IR correction
The camera has an OSD menu enabling the user to precisely adjust image parameters to the lighting conditions in which the camera works. The menu allows to configure the following parameters/modes:
  • kind of auto iris cotrol (VIDEO, DC),
  • shutter speed,
  • BLC,
  • AGC,
  • mode of work (DAY/NIGHT, COLOR, B/W),
  • GAMMA,
  • picture parameters (contrast, brightness, blue and red components)
  • PRIVACY zonesi,
  • ID information,
Adjustment of all parameters of the image is done by using the buttons on the side of the camera - which allows for easy access and configuration.
