Combining the sensor and resolution of its mirrorless cousins, the Sony ILX-LR1 Industrial Camera is designed to capture stunning 4K imagery while remaining light enough to install onto a drone or industrial equipment. The simplified design weighs under 9 oz and features an interchangeable E-mount to utilize a wide range of lenses. Though it is compact in size, it features numerous controls, HDMI and USB-C outputs, an SD card slot, and terminal power and remote control options.
Install and Integrate
Significantly lighter than conventional Alpha cameras, the ILX-LR1 is ideal for inspection, investigation, surveying, and mapping. With no need for a viewfinder and external controls, its slim and versatile form factor means it is suitable for a multitude of industrial applications.
The camera's full-frame back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS image sensor with approximately 61MP offers extraordinary sensitivity, resolution, and dynamic range. Operating in real time, the advanced BIONZ XR image processing engine delivers natural gradations and realistic colors with low noise for stills and movies. With high resolution, low noise, and wide dynamic range imagery, the ILX-R1 can reveal the finest details like small scratches and cracks. A wide ISO range of 100-32000 allows the camera to operate in most daylight conditions.
Light, Adaptable Design
The ILX-LR1 is designed for industrial applications that have no need for a conventional camera body, sporting a lightweight and compact design. The lower weight means longer flight times and compatibility with smaller drones, allowing high-altitude shooting jobs to be completed quickly. A 3 fps continuous shooting capability, which is suitable for drone mapping, enables rapid completion of high-altitude shooting.
Dedicated Remote SDK
The Sony Camera Remote SDK allows users to remotely control the ILX-LR1 menus and other functions from their own software applications. By integrating an API into the system, it becomes possible to remotely control the camera from a computer, allowing changes to camera settings, shutter release, live view monitoring, and more. With the Sony Camera Remote SDK, user applications can link unique image IDs with drone position data in post-processing.
Easy Mounting and Compatibility
The ILX-LR1 accepts DC power for long periods of operation without having to change batteries, and power and recording indicator lamps provide a visual status check. The camera's Power and Control Terminal provides power supply, exposure output, focus, and trigger from a single terminal for remote applications that require an instant response.
To prevent unintended changes to camera settings, it is equipped with a LOCK switch. There are screw mounts on each of its six surfaces, and micro-HDMI, top-lock USB-C, and button controls are grouped together to maximize mounting options.
Wide Selection of E-Mount Lenses
The ILX-LR1 is an interchangeable lens camera, compatible with a wide range of E-mount lenses. Whatever the nature of the shot, you can select the most appropriate lens, including medium telephoto lengths. With an approx. Using a 61MP full-frame image sensor, a single picture taken from a high altitude can replace several pictures from a lower-resolution camera.
