BW-5LLM DSP (digital signal processing) CCD exposed board camera module with Sony Ex-View 1/3" imager. 3.6mm wide angle board lens included installed. *Optional alternate lenses available (2.45mm, 2.97mm, 6mm, 8mm, 12mm, 16mm). This unit is compatible with ALL of our recorders and wireless equipment. It's also compatible with all consumer VCRs as well as most television sets (those with standard composite RCA or BNC inputs).


Unbelievable performance for such a tiny camera! BEWARE: We've had many customer reports of cameras out there which look and spec IDENTICALLY to this unit, but which are  inferior in comparison of video images. The "430+ horizontal TV lines / 0.0003 lux" cam is one of the smallest 1/3" CCD enclosed case board lens camera and is capable of performing in lower light situations than any other such camera. The choice for a variety of potentially low-light applications- whether for low profile security or just general video use. Newly revised 1/3" Sony Ex-View DSP (digital signal processing) CCD imager chipset. In normal to medium lighting, this features identical picture quality to our other enclosed case BW-4/5HAD configurations, as well as the exposed board BW-1HAD. But when the available light all but disappears, this little unit still 'sees' well. Of course- no camera can image in pitch dark (thermal imaging aside), but this is as close as you'll get without the aid of IR or visible illumination!

It should be noted that we have six other black and white (monochrome) cameras with the same ultra low-light capable chipset: #BW-5HRM (same as this but high resolution 600 TV lines), #BW-5HR (high resolution / low lux pinhole), , #BW-5LL (low lux pinhole),#TV-BCSHR (high resolution CS mount) and weatherproof bullets #BW-4LL and #BW-4EX.

We carry ONLY the LATEST and BEST in CCTV chipset technology and circuit board engineering (both aspects are critical to produce a high quality CCD camera)!

Common Applications:

• General covert / disguised use as it easy to hide behind many types of materials
• Economical indoor security solutions
• Onboard vehicle use including security and backup purposes
• OEM & scientific / machine purposes

Available Options:

DELUXE 7 piece bonus accessory kit included FREE with each camera ordered! ($60+ value) Features 25 ft. video + power cable which can be upgraded to 50', 100' or even 150' in your choice of black or white color!

*These are available with additional or alternate lenses. We will custom remove the normally included 3.6mm lens & replace with your desired lens, including focal adjustment, for $9.95- simply ask operator for part # LENS-SVC when ordering the camera(s) and lens(es).

Variations / Alternate Equipment to Consider:

We stock a couple different versions of this same camera. The #BW-5LLM (low lux 0.0003) and the #BW-5HRM (high 600 TV line resolution + 0.0003 lux).


This is a non-weatherproof camera, and as such- must be treated with extra care and NEVER left outdoors without the proper protective housings.
