Helmet Camera

Sony XC-555p Broadcast Quality Head Camera.

SVideo Y/C or Composite VBS output

This is the highest quality head-cam in production to date. The superb Sony XC-555p.

Unrivalled video quality from this 470 tvl head camera kit. The xc555p has been built to incredibly high broadcast quality standards and incorporates a Sony SuperHAD 1/2" CCD sensor. The 12 pin hirose connector on the rear can be configured to give a composite VBS signal or SVideo Y/C signal. Makes a perfect partner to the NDT-200 or MiniDVR Pro solid state recorders both of which can accept an Svideo Y/C signal for high quality colour separation.

The XC-555p is probably THE toughest head-cam available with a shock resistance of 70G.

Dimensions: 22 x 22 x 75mm / 60grms
