After it officially confirmed to participate in this year’s East Africa Com event, we’ve got a taste of what’s in store from Canon– one of many technology corporations that took part in the event. Security companies were presented with one of the company’s latest Full HD multipurpose network camera – the Canon ME20F-SHN that’s been on the market for a while and is notably dated but probably still unknown by many stakeholders. We also got to see a range of Canon’s innovations that span from digital print solutions that enables customers to print and manage their documents in the most efficient, secure and economical manner as well as some of its latest professional broadcasting and security solutions in the imaging industry.

Let’s have a look at Canon ME20F-SHN full HD network camera Review
While you’d easily associate Canon with point-to-shoot camera’s, security is a new territory that the company is yet to create a distinguishable reputation, which basically means it has to work extra hard just like any other brand. There are a few highlights that may impress security companies out there or individuals who are rather into do-it-yourself category.

Canon ME20F-SHN’s full frame 35mm sensor and DIGIC DV 4 processor, are poised to deliver sharp, low noise, Full HD color video in extreme low light conditions. And while a maximum ISO that goes beyond 4 million guarantees that the ME20F-SHN can capture subjects illuminated with less than 0.0005 lux. You’d be amazed how this network camera can deliver detailed footage even in low-light situations by removing the IR cut filter when shooting in infrared mode.
