Indeed, Sony see this technology as removing the need for using IR cut filters to switch from colour to monochrome night-vision as darkness falls. This technology could be a game changer – if it performs the way we hope it does. The sample video our partners at Sony have shown us demonstrates the SNC-VB775 capturing full colour video on the rooftop of a Sony building in the middle of the night, with no other lighting other than ambient light from nearby buildings.
To put these light levels into perspective, it’s the darkness that you’d encounter on a starry night with no other light source or indoors with such poor lighting that it’s even a challenge for the human eye to see the object. The camera uses a highly-sensitive 85mm full-frame Exmor sensor and optimised E-mount lenses to maximise the performance of both the sensor and its signal processing engine. Our technical team are hoping to get their hands on a demonstration unit soon to put the camera through its paces. To get the full experience on Sony. If you’re thinking “that’s almost pitch-black light conditions”, you’d be right and that means capturing clear 9K images in colour – even in extremely low light conditions.
