SVBONY's first cooling camera SV405CC Review

What is a cooling camera?

The light receiving sensor of the camera becomes more noisy at high temperatures and less at low temperatures. By cooling the light receiving sensor, you can obtain a low noise image.

In addition, the temperature control function of the cooling device allows you to shoot at a constant temperature during use, so you can obtain a uniform image without being affected by changes in the outside temperature even when shooting for a long time.

Opening Ceremony

Well then, I will open it!
