Canon Announces the ME20F-SHN
« on: November 22, 2017, 08:39:11 AM »

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 21 November 2017: Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, today announces the launch of the ME20F-SHN, a low light network camera with remarkable performance. As a sister product to the ME20F-SH, the ME20F-SHN which now features network capability, further enhances Canon’s Multiple Purpose camera line-up with a solid proposition in producing full colour and Full HD resolution images in limited light scenarios. Perfect for critical surveillance operations, the ME20F-SHN packs incredible low light performance, network capability and built-in video analytics into a lightweight and compact body.


Incredible low-light performance

Equipped with a 2.26MP Full Frame 35mm CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV 4 processor, the ME20F-SHN delivers sharp, low noise, Full HD colour video in extreme low light conditions. The sensor’s pixels and readout circuitry use Canon’s proprietary technologies to achieve both reduced noise and exceptionally high sensitivity. With a maximum ISO in excess of 4 million (+75db), which delivers amazing low-light sensitivity, the ME20F-SHN can capture subjects illuminated with less than 0.0005 lux. Even greater detail can be captured in low-light environments by removing the IR cut filter when shooting in infrared mode.


Much like Canon’s Cinema EOS range, this network camera offers Canon Log and Wide DR from the Custom Picture menu, which enables a wide dynamic range of up to 12 Stops (800%), delivering high-quality images across a range of lighting scenarios. The Custom Picture menu has been upgraded, with the addition of the Crisp Img function, which obtains sharp images in well-lit environments and low noise image under low light conditions. These features are invaluable for users needing to capture clear and accurate images.








Enhanced network capability for surveillance applications

Featuring Ethernet, 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI ports, the ME20F-SHN caters for a plethora of video outputs based on users’ application requirements. For local monitoring, the ME20F-SHN has 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI ports; while an Ethernet connection enables remote operation of camera settings, monitoring and recording via web browsers, mobile devices or other video management software. The microSD card slot supports record and playback directly from a microSD card. For unmanned and cost-efficient surveillance, the 6 built-in video analytics functions and Alarm I/O interface enables automated recording and output to external devices triggered by video motion detection and alarm input.


With the Area-specific Data Size Reduction (ADSR) function, the ME20F-SHN enables users to capture absolute detail in selected areas of interest while reducing bit-rates in the other areas of the image to save network bandwidth. For ease of integration into existing video surveillance systems, the ME20F-SHN supports a wide range of video management software through Canon WebView and ONVIF protocols.


Flexible installation capabilities

Operators can select the ideal lens for each shooting and equipment scenario, taking aspects such as angle of view and level of brightness into account. Featuring an EF mount with Cinema Lock, the ME20F-SHN is compatible with a broad range of lenses across the Canon line-up, including zooms, primes and selected Cine Servo lenses for greater control. With PoE+ support, the data transmission via Ethernet and power supply are provided with a single LAN cable, which facilitates simple and rapid installation of the camera. The compact body and lightweight design are invaluable for users needing both a fixed and portable camera.


ME20F-SHN key features:



  • Sharp, low noise colour video in extreme low light

  • Network capable remote configuration and monitoring

  • Supports a wide range of surveillance applications

  • High-quality Full HD output

  • Flexible installation

For about 20K, I'm thinking nope.

Happy Thanksgiving.

The Sony SNC-VB770 offers 4k video on a full-frame sensor at a fraction of the cost.

What is Canon thinking?

Sigh

The processing, cooling, and raw power consumption of such a device would be completely impractical to manufacture with current technology. We're a solid decade away from that kind of thing as anything other than a made-to-order one-off. Even then it'll be another few years before it progress through military use to domestic surveillance to consumer.

400,000 ISO Sony, 4 Million ISO Canon, slight difference.

Since that ISO is pretty hard for most of us to imagine... think 0.0005 lux.  That is practically no light at all.  To put it in perspective, a full moon on a clear day at sea level is something like 0.25 lux.

This is an incredible camera for low light surveillance..... if you need it, it is worth the price!

If you have a specialized need that is important enough, you will get one.... or several.... security and surveillance are a very lucrative market to be in, and the Canon reputation of “it just plain works as expected” coupled with their reputation for service makes them a very comfortable purchase for government and large industries. (And yes, I have mounted surveillance cameras that make this one look inexpensive)
The best camera is the one in your hands
