Versatile and wide-angle network camera with zoom/focus capability 

Featuring a medley of cutting-edge technologies that promise vantage viewing round-the-clock, business owners can finally put their security concerns to rest. From the ability to pan and tilt in sweeping arcs, to the precise optics, advanced detection technology, and user-friendly interface of the bundled software, the latest Canon network cameras will tackle your monitoring requirements, big or small.

  • 100? wide angle-of-view and 3x optical zoom
  • Minimum subject illumination: Day 0.4 lux / Night 0.04 lux
  • 1.3m high pixel count (1280 x 960) 


102.5-degree wide angle-of-view and 3x optical zoom

Equipped with a bright F1.2 lens with a wide 102.5-degree horizontal field of view, the VB-M700F lets nothing slip past you. The 3x optical zoom also plays an integral part in magnifying small subjects.

Privacy Mask Function

The Privacy Mask Function blocks certain areas of the camera view. In locations where surveillance is required but passwords and input operations are not to be recorded, such as ATM and apartment entrances with keypad security, fine security measures can be taken by realizing security-conscious recording.

High Quality & High Compression Combined H.264 Streaming Compatible

Compatible with H.264, an image compression format that combines high quality and high compression rates, operation of surveillance systems streaming in high resolution with low network load is realized. Furthermore, it also features Smart Shade Control during H.264 stream, to widely support the needs of high resolution streaming.
