1. Introduction
Features
● The KY-F1030 is a digital camera employing a 1/2” CCD with 1.45 million effective pixels.
● Employment of RGB primary color filter CCD for color adjustment close to that of 3-CCD
cameras.
● Output of 1360 × 1024-pixel digital/analog video signal possible.
● Built-in DSP for real-time processing of the video signal that is output as a 7.5 frames-persecond Y, Cb, Cr 4:2:2 digital signal enables real-time transfer to personal computer by means
of IEEE1394 host adapter.
● Using the designated scan rate converter enables display of the analog output on an SXGAcompliant monitor.
● Built-in IEEE1394 connector enables remote control from personal computer. (Software provided.)

1. Introduction (continued)
Cautionary notes for the correct usage of this product
• Before recording an important event, etc., always check to make sure that this product is
working properly.
• We are not liable for any missed recordings caused by malfunction of this unit, etc.
Phenomena unique to CCD
• Smearing and blooming
When using CCD to shoot a bright light source, a smearing effect may occur running a
white line vertical to the light source. In addition, a blooming effect may also occur when the
light source is extremely bright, spreading light to the source surroundings.
• Line distortion
Line and patterns may appear distorted when shot.
• White spots
White spots may appear on the screen when operating under high temperatures. Always
use the product under recommended ambient temperatures.
White spots may also appear at a slow shutter speed setting (1/8 s or higher).
To reduce this phenomenon, this product is provided with at built-in white spot compensation function. ( Z page E28 White spot compensation)
Cautionary notes
• Influence of strong electric waves and magnets
Screen noise and discolouration may occur when using the product near antennas of radios and televisions or near transformers, monitors, etc. with strong magnetic force.
• Compatible lenses ( page E17 Mounting the lens)
Although the lens mount of this product is a type C mount, take caution as there are restrictions on the lenses that can be used.
• To save electricity, turn off the system when not in use.
Cleaning
When clean the equipment please use dry cleaning cloth or wet cleaning cloth with small
amount of alcohol.
Do not spill any liquid into KY-F1030.
Do not install the KY-F1030 in a location where it is subject to radiation or x-rays or
where corrosive gasses are generated.

Remove the lens mount cap. At this time, take caution so that dust do not enter inside the
mount.
2.
To mount the lens, lightly press the thread section of the lens mount onto the thread section
of KY-F1030, then turn the lens unit or KY-F1030 slowly clockwise until it is securely tightened.
MEMO
To change the position of the lens rotation:
햲 First, turn the mount clamp ring clockwise (1/4 turns) with the lens facing you.
햳 Slowly turn the lens and after adjusting the position, retighten the mount clamp ring.
3.
Insert the camera cable of the lens into the [LENS] connection terminal on the rear of KYF1030, then securely lock.
The iris control is made from the KY-F1030.
4.
When using the lens remote controller, connect the lens control cable (female) to the remote control. Also, when focusing and zoom controller is to be performed on the KY-F1030,
connect the lens control cable (female) to the [MD CONTROL] terminal on the KY-F1030.
When operating the lens iris manually by lens remote control connection, set IRIS MODE to
manual. ( page E33)
CAUTION
When using a motorized lens, use the AC adapter as power supply for the KY-F1030.

Pin configurations of connectors ( page E12).
When the shutter mode is other than “RANDOM” “EEI” ( page E34, SHUTTER item)
● In response to the trigger input, the KY-F1030 outputs a flash signal for the CCD accumulation
period of the next frame.
● The image shot at the moment that the FLASH signal is outputted is output as the next frame.
● In the case of digital output, output stops with shooting of this frame and the image on the
PC’s monitor will be in the FREEZE condition.
● How to cancel the FREEZE condition can be selected. ( page E40, [FRZ CANCEL] item)
● The trigger interval must be minimum 3 frames (405 msec) at a shutter speed of 1/7.5 s or
faster.
● When the FREEZE cancel mode is set to “MANUAL”, FLASH will not be output in response to
the trigger input for FREEZE cancellation.

White spot compensation
One of the inherent, general characteristics of CCDs is that white spots may appear in the image
at slow shutter speeds or during shooting at high temperatures.
To moderate this phenomenon, this camera is provided with a white spot compensation function.
In the digital output mode, white spot adjustment should be performed using the special application software [KY-LINK].
How to use
White spot detection
Because the number of spots and their size differ with the temperature and shutter speed, etc., it is necessary to
detect the positions of the white spots under the conditions of use before the white spot compensation is used.

MEMO
• The camera’s white spot compensation function cannot compensate completely for all white spots.
White spot detection and compensation by this camera must be performed under the following conditions. White spot compensation is not possible under other conditions. Even when these conditions are met, the properties of the
white spots may prevent compensation.
No. of detections and compensations: Within a total of 10 spots.
• The screen shown on the right may appear if light enters the CCD
while white spot detection is being performed, or due to the conditions of the white spots. In this case, confirm that light is not
entering the CCD. If light is not entering the CCD but the screen
nevertheless remain displayed, accelerate the shutter one step
and perform the detection again.
• When white spot compensation is carried out, the compensation
of the pixel data is performed based on surrounding pixel data,
which means that accurate data may not be obtained in case of
an image with fine details.
• The result of the white spot detection is retained until the next white spot detection is performed.

• When the shutter speed is slower than 1/7.5 s, the
following phenomena may occur.
1) The screen update rate becomes longer in the case
of digital output.
2) The displayed image will appear intermittently in the
case of analog output.
3) Time will be required for the auto white, auto iris and
ALC operations.
If the shutter speed is set slower than 1 s, these
operations will behave as follows.
Auto white : Auto white balance function cannot be started.
( page E23 White balance adjustment)
Auto iris : Stops at the iris value at that time.
ALC
: Stops at the sensitivity at that time.
To use a shutter speed slower than 1 s, use with the following settings selected:
IRIS MODE : MANUAL
GAIN
: STEP or V.GAIN
• There may be shortage of light when the shutter speed is
increased. In this case, adjust the iris or sensitivity. Attention should be paid to the picture quality when the sensitivity is raised since the image becomes coarse.

About ALC and EEI operations
Specifications
ALC stands for Automatic Level Control and EEI for Extended Electronic Iris. ( page E34)
By making the respective settings, the Automatic Level Control (ALC) will operate under dark
lighting, and the electronic shutter (EEI) will operate under bright lighting. Furthermore, setting
the IRIS mode to AUTO will synchronize sensitivity, iris and electronic shutter so that an appropriate signal level can be acquired automatically at all times.
The ALC mode increases sensitivity from 0dB to +12dB under dark lighting and the EEI
modeautomatically adjusts the range of 1/7.5 s to 1/2384.7 s (calculated value) under bright
lighting. In other words, the signal level is adjusted in the range of 2 graduations of the aperture
under dark lighting and 8 graduations under bright lighting. When the IRIS mode is set to manual,
the sensitivity and electronic shutter change continuously while the iris setting stays fixed. (
page E33 IRIS MODE)
This feature holds the advantage of being able to shoot under changing light conditions without
the depth of field altering.
MEMO
• The status of ALC and EEI can be displayed on the screen. ( page E40 AE DISPLAY)
• When EEI is used, the amount of change in one step of the signal level will be large and the precision
becomes bad as the shutter speed is faster.
• When analog output is used, and EEI LIMIT is set to 1s when a dark subject is shot, the image will
appear intermittently so the 1/7.5s setting should be used.
