The Q-Ball is a HD/SD Pan and Tilt camera system combining both modern appearance and high performance in the smallest system currently available.
Based around the well proven Sony HD camera block, Camera Corps have added exclusive additional features to make this system the most comprehensive and flexible HD/SD Minicam system available today.
The Q-Ball incorporates a high quality built in 10x zoom optical lens and smooth accelerating pan/tilt motors in a robust fully weatherproof aluminium sphere with a diameter of 115 mm/4.5in.
The addition of up to four embedded audio channels allows stereo effects mics to be incorporated in to any set-up. Master Black level and Colour Saturation control allows much better colour matching of this popular Sony camera with other HD/SD cameras, important in all situations where camera types are “mixed”.
Optional extra features include infra-red capability and a wide angle lens adaptor.
