FCB-EV9520L VS. SONY FCB-EV9500L:Strong competition

SONY is a world-renowned large-scale comprehensive brand. Its FCB series zoom cameras are famous for their excellent performance and reliability. Xuanzhan Technology , with its hard-core technical strength and rich practical experience, has continuously won the SONY FCB camera award. Product Authorized Reseller Qualifications.


FCB-EV9520L and FCB-EV9500L

SONY FCB-EV9520L and FCB-EV9500L are two high-performance products that have attracted much attention from the industry. This article will conduct a strong comparison between these two products and explore their differences in sensor size and model, volume and weight, horizontal field of view, etc.


1/2.8 inch VS. 1/1.8 inch

First, let’s look at the comparison in terms of sensor size. The FCB-EV9500L has a larger sensor size of 1/1.8 inches, while the sensor size of the FCB-EV9520L is 1/2.8 inches.


1/1.8-inch sensors are larger relative to 1/2.8-inch sensors and therefore generally have a higher pixel count and better low-light performance. A larger sensor can capture more light, making the image clearer and more detailed, with better dynamic range and color expression. Therefore, the FCB-EV9500L with a 1/1.8-inch sensor has higher sensitivity and is suitable for surveillance and camera applications that require high-quality images.


In lower light environments, the 1/2.8-inch sensor may produce more noise and image blur. However, the smaller size of the 1/2.8-inch sensor of the FCB-EV9520L allows for a smaller and lighter camera design, which is suitable for some application scenarios that require camera size and weight, such as drones, medical and other industries.



FCB-EV9520L’s STARVIS2 and FCB-EV9500L’s STARVIS are both image sensor technologies introduced by Sony. The difference between them is mainly reflected in performance and functionality.


Brightness: STARVIS2 performs better in low light conditions than STARVIS. STARVIS2 uses new sensor technology and pixel structure to provide higher sensitivity and better low-light performance, resulting in clearer images at night or in low-light environments.

Function enhancement: STARVIS2 may have some improvements and enhancements in function compared to STARVIS. For example, there may be more image processing functions, higher frame rate support (the 4K60P camera FCB-ER9500, which will be launched in the summer of 2024, also uses the STARVIS2 sensor), etc., making STARVIS2 perform even better in practical applications.


Since the sensor size of FCB-EV9520L is smaller than that of FCB-EV9500L, from a one-way comparison, the low-light performance of FCB-EV9520L is slightly inferior to FCB-EV9500L, but the more advanced sensor STARVIS2 of FCB-EV9520L makes up for this shortcoming, so although the sensor size and model of the two are slightly different, they are the same in terms of low-light performance, with the lowest illumination reaching 0.00008Lx.


Volume and weight comparison

FCB-EV9520L and FCB-EV9500L Volume and weight comparison

FCB-EV9500L is: 56.0×64.0x125.0mm, the weight is: 439g, the weight-reduced version: 310g;

FCB-EV9520L is: 50.0×60.0x89.7mm, and the weight is: 238g. Weight-saving version: 165g;


In terms of volume and weight, FCB-EV9520L is smaller and lighter than FCB-EV9500L, and is more suitable for environments with limited space. It also has lower power consumption, extending battery life and saving energy costs for limited power supply scenarios, and is more suitable for specific application requirements.


The FCB-EV9520L has the same size casing as the traditional FCB-EV7520/CV7520 series, making it easy to replace and upgrade . Additionally, LVDS output pin definitions are compatible.


Horizontal field of view 64.0 VS. 58.1

The horizontal field of view of FCB-EV9520L is 64.0 deg ;

The horizontal field of view of FCB-EV9500L is 58.1deg;


FCB-EV9520L and FCB-EV9500L Horizontal field of view


Compared with FCB-EV9500L, FCB-EV9520L has a larger horizontal field of view and can capture a wider range of scenery, making it suitable for shooting scenes that require a wide field of view.


The FCB-EV9500L has a smaller field of view. Although it cannot capture a wide range of scenery, it does have its advantages in certain situations. Suitable for shooting scenes that require focus on specific objects or details. It can present specific objects or details more concentratedly and make them more prominent.

In general:

FCB-EV9520L and FCB-EV9500L are both SONY’s latest high-performance color camera blocks. They use new lenses, image sensors and image signal processors, and are comparable in terms of main performance and functions. , each with its own characteristics. However, the volume and weight of FCB-EV9520L is the same as that of the traditional FCB-EV7520/CV7520 series , making it easier to update and iterate. Users can choose the camera block and solution that suits them based on their actual needs.
