40x optical zoom
The SX800 is equipped with a 40x optical zoom lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths from 20mm on the wide angle end to 800mm on the telephoto end. It is complemented with 1.25x digital zoom to achieve long-range surveillance equivalent to 1000m in focal length.
High-performance image stabilization
New image stabilization system
The SX800 combines optical image stabilization (OIS) and electronic image stabilization (EIS) to accurately compensate for camera shake, typically caused by gusts and footing vibrations at the site of camera installation. The system is particularly effective when shooting in the ultra-telephoto range, which is susceptible to even the slightest of shakes.

In the EIS mode, the SX800 uses a sensor large enough for its lens’s effective diameter to secure full HD resolution (1920 x 1080), thereby delivering footage of premium quality. The combined use with OIS also improves the durability of the image stabilization system substantially.
Use of new devices
The SX800 sports high-precision gyro sensors to accurately detect minute vibrations that could not be detected previously. The use of newly-developed high-thrust linear motor delivers an advanced level of accuracy and tracking performance.
New ceramic bead roller system
The SX800’s OIS uses a unique “ceramic bead roller” system. Ceramic beads, processed in ultimate precision, minimizes friction and resistance to achieve advanced responsiveness and excellent durability in image stabilization.
