This is a stated-of-art CCTV surveillance system. Most compact powerful optical lens without extender together with special low light CMOS sensor.

TZ-500NH utilizes the state of art sensor technology to provide color image even under extreme low light conditions.
Perfectly adjusted backfocus and fine-tuned mechanics & electronics ensures fast and precise autofocus. There is no need to set up lens and camera any more.
Use of classical optical zoom construction ensures focused image while zooming without additional use of focusing mechanism. This grants well-known Japanese durability to the system.

TZ product line: TZ-1500NH and TZ-500NH share same electronics & architecture. Both have same control, same connectors, requiring only time integration.
