The UHL-F4000 is a 4K/HD 3CMOS HDR Multi-Purpose separate optics 2-piece camera, featuring a compact, lightweight, and low power consuming camera head (optical block), which makes the camera especially well suited for helicopter camera applications or other locations with limited space. As the succeeding model of the HDL-F3000, the F4000 is newly equipped with Global Shutter CMOS sensors, which capture natural images completely clear of flash band effects and geometric distortions during still frame analysis. The F4000 is also newly capable of simultaneously outputting 4K and  HD images, but its significant low light capability has been passed down from its former model. Additional improvements in its image processing functions such as Variable Contrast Control, Image Sharpening Function, and Digital Zoom Function (from 1.01x to 10.0x) will broaden the F4000’s usage.

Compact Size

A compact and power saving camera head has been achieved in order to suit its application as a helicopter camera system. The 1.1kg camera head fits in small sized gimbals for example.


High Sensitivity

There is virtually no loss of quality caused by different illumination conditions. The UHL-F4000 can produce high quality pictures under any conditions, day or night.

High Sensitivity


HDR (High Dynamic Range)

The camera provides an HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) mode conforming to ITU-R BT.2100 which is an international standard for High Dynamic Range. HDR enables the UHL-F4000 to deliver superbly detailed picture quality across the full range of brightness levels from deep black to peak white. With it's wide color gamut, the camera also captures rich color.


Digital Zoom Function

The UHL-F4000 has a digital zoom function from 1.1x to 10.0x in increments of 0.1, allowing a very smooth and natural zoom. Combined with the optical zoom, the overall zooming of the image looks more natural.  


Variable Contrast Control

The operator can easily reproduce clear images with proper contrast even in situations of bad visibility such as shooting through fog and smoke.

Variable Contrast Control


Image Sharpening Function

The Image Sharpening Function boosts an image's edge level when the image is zoomed in for instance. This function can be effective when shooting a car license plate.


Variable NR Control

The remote control panel includes a variable control so the operator can adapt the camera in real time for optimum noise reduction when shooting at night with high gain.


Optical Fiber Connection

An Optical Fiber connection is employed between the camera head and CCU, allowing them to be separated by a distance up to 10km. This allows different configuration for a range of applications. * The camera head needs a connection for power (in addition to the fiber connection).


Image Reversal Function

The UHL-F4000 can output an up-down reversed image, which is applicable if the camera is set upside down.


Focus Assist Function

Focus Assist Function is achieved by placing the edge components of the 4K image on the HD MON OUT signal. Therefore it is possible to critically focus 4K images using an HD monitor.


Ethernet Trunk Line

An Ethernet Trunk line is available between camera head and CCU. Using this line enables a controller on the CCU side at a distant location to send commands to a peripheral device such as a Pan & Tilt Head.


AVC (Auto Video-Level Control) Function

The AVC (Auto Video-Level Control) Function allows the camera to maintain a constant video level by automatically controlling ND filter position, IRIS, gain, and shutter speed.


ATW (Auto Tracking White balance) Function

The UHL-F4000 has ATW (Auto Tracking White Balance) in addition to one-push AWB. ATW Function makes it possible to automatically adjust white balance when shooting outside with varying color temperature.
