Fujifilm released its first surveillance camera, SX800, which is touted to offer zooming capabilities like a telephoto camera.

The Fujifilm SX800 is a long-range surveillance camera with 40x optical zoom and 1.25x digital zoom that can reach the focal length equivalent to 1000mm in long-range surveillance. Theoretically, this makes the camera capable of capturing a car's license plate at about 1km away, the official release notes.

The Fujifilm SX800 is ideally meant for border surveillance, or monitoring in large-scale public facilities such as ports, airports, highways, or even forests. It will be available starting July 26.
