Nikon Inc. has announced it will begin marketing in December an electronic still video camera system that features the world's highest sensitivity.

The company said the new product, Nikon Still Video Camera System, consists of a single lense reflex camera, two interchangeable high-speed, wide zoom ratio lenses and a portable transmitter-viewer.The transmitter enables users to send their images to a remote receiver via telephone lines or radio links.

Its high sensivity - more than four times greater than other electronic still video cameras - allows users to take photos at low-light indoor and other dimly lit locations, the company said.

Since the images are recorded on magnetic media, there is no conventional film-processing, and the image can immediately be transmitted, reducing the time needed for transmission, the company said.
