CCFC Outdoor Observation and Surveillance Field Camera

18x Optical Zoom and Auto Focus

The CCFC Field Camera is a high-quality, high-resolution outdoor zoom video and still image camera specifically designed for remote outdoor observation applications. The camera captures high-quality photos and video in wide-angle, and with 18x optical zoom, under various lighting conditions. Our Field Camera consumes low power, making it ideal for outdoor observation in remote locations using a solar-power battery. The camera can also operate with ac power where ac is available. It has a high-quality, very rugged anodized aluminum environmental case that enables its outdoor use in extremes of temperature. The Field Camera is compatible with Campbell Scientific data loggers, as well as other data logger brands. 

Featuring New NDVI Capability! 

With OS version 2.5 or above, the CCFC Field Camera is able to function as a normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) sensor. This feature uses infrared data to produce a visualization of live green vegetation in the image. This allows the user to determine at-a-glance areas of healthy growth and areas where growth is less abundant. Applications for NDVI include vegetation dynamics, biomass production, grazing management, changes in rangeland condition, soil moisture, and CO2 flux.

Wi-Fi Camera Access 

This outdoor camera, which includes Wi-Fi access, can be controlled using a smartphone from the safety of the ground. The CCFC features an all-web interface that makes setup and configuration easy. The interface works on any desktop or mobile browser, and it contains built-in tips to ensure you are getting the most out of your outdoor camera. The camera capture and retrieval modes are highly configurable, enabling even the most advanced users complete control of settings. 

Camera Zoom and Auto Focus 

The CCFC comes with a high-quality 18x optical zoom lens and an upgraded image sensor (when compared to the CC5MPX camera model). Users can designate up to 15 preset lens positions to capture photos or video from different zoom lengths for each capture event. The camera’s auto-focus feature enables it to automatically re-focus at each zoom length so each trigger event captures a collection of clear photos and video. 

High-Quality Photos and Video 

The camera can produce photos of up to 5 megapixels and video up to 720p. The camera’s photo and video capture trigger modes include two independent timed captures, as well as external triggers, such as data logger control, motion detection, and web interface control. These capture modes make the CCFC an ideal camera for a wide variety of outdoor observation and surveillance applications. The camera comes with 16 GB of internal memory to store captured media. 

Getting Photos and Video 

The camera can send photos and video directly to a desktop or publish them to the web via various communications options. Photos and video taken by the camera can be delivered to you from remote locations via cellular modem, Ethernet 10/100, RS-232, RS-485, satellite, and PakBus. The camera can be configured to act as a webcam that publishes photos and video directly to a website using various communications devices. The CCFC comes with 16 GB of outdoor-rated internal memory. 

Night Mode 

The CCFC Field Camera is equipped with two IR LEDs and configurable Night Mode settings, so images can be captured under almost any lighting condition. 


Two mounting options add versatility to the camera’s applications. The camera can be used worldwide and is suitable for the following outdoor observation and surveillance applications:
