Loaded with Features
Wide dynamic range is just the beginning of the list of
features on the ECL-552W security camera. It does not include a
lens since this camera is designed to be used with any industry
standard C- or CS-mount lens.
OSD Configurable Settings
More than just the lens can be configured by the end user.
The OSD (on-screen display) menu lets you adjust all the
important image quality factors for your situation.
You can configure white balance to help insure accurate color
reproduction. Configure LUX sensitivity to pickup up images in
light levels as low as 0.0002 LUX. Enhance image sharpness and
color. Adjust auto-gain levels. Even set up a privacy mask. The
OSD menu lets you do much more compared to other cameras that
have switch selectable setting (usually ON/OFF).
Discussion of all options available in the OSD menu is beyond
the scope and intent of this page.

Industry Standard Lens CS-Mount
A lens is not included with this camera.
It has an industry standard mount so if you have C- or CS-mount lenses on hand
they will probably fit. In the event you do need a lens, click here to go to our LENS section
, where you can find a wide variety of security camera
lenses that will fit this camera.
True Wide Dynamic Range
The Sony HAD II Double-scan video sensor creates higher quality images by using a non-digital True WDR sampling technique. The sensor scans an image several times, uses analog techniques to compare and analyze each pass, then performs color and brightness correction before outputting a video image. This provides better imaging when compared to cameras that use standard (digital) WDR techniques. It is especially useful when the situation requires you to take video of individuals in front of a background that contains a high degree of varying amounts of light and high/low contrast regions of color and shadow.
These sampling techniques pay off. The Sony video sensor and the chipset in this camera will produce clear, usable high resolution (typically ~600 lines) images where other cameras will only generate darkly tinted figures and images floating in haze and tinted video artifacts.
