21 megapixel digital stills with embedded metadata
21MP Digital sensor
Pan - Tilt - Zoom
4K and HD recording to
Small 1.5″ diameter
Standard Titanium 6500m depth rating
Dimmable 50mW output
Generates a sharp line with a fan angle of 53.9° in water
120˚ dome port
Very low distortion
The digital pan-tilt-zoom capability enables a (ROI) binning of the 21MP camera sensor in real time. Physically moving the camera is not necessary as the pan and tilt is inside the camera. This feature can reduce the reliance on mechanical pan tilts, thereby

Live Control of
Built on the maturity and reliability of SubC’s smart camera backbone, the Rayfin is designed to exceed the highest requirements
of AUV, ROV, observatory and autonomous systems. Click here to watch the Rayfin tutorial series on YouTube.
Live Ethernet transfer of
stills and video
Automatic and manual
Since 2010, SubC has provided systems to observatories that have been deployed for months to years at a time. In that time, we have gathered the requirements for the ideal observatory camera. The Rayfin has been designed for observatories by including the following features:
Ethernet video and still transfer
Ability to operate as an equipment multiplexer by utilizing Aux ports
Automatic lighting control for lamp and strobe
An API for customization and scheduling
Live Video Options
Live video and stills transferred over Ethernet. Composite video compatible with older underwater systems.
Power and Ethernet over 2 wires. Used for drop camera systems to reduce the cost of cabling.
Uncompressed HD video transferred over HD-SDI,
Live video and stills are also transferred over
4K over fiber optics. Ethernet, HD video and comms for un-compromised live video quality.
Because the Rayfin camera is running software, we update it regularly, which increases the value and capabilities.
Multi-camera photo synchronization (for photogrammetry and other applications)
User interface for Scripting
White Balance Presets (for shallow green water and other conditions)
ZeroConf and IPv6
SubC Dive Log formatted data recording
Display of tilt and roll data graphically
Intuitive Aux device interface
Built-in autonomous controls allow the camera to be programmed for offline battery or AUV operation. In this mode
the camera can sleep to conserve power, wake to take images, and record video at predetermined timings.
NMEA formatted data can be sent to the camera via Serial or Ethernet then time stamped and stored in a CSV file alongside the images. System time, altimeter, depth, position, heading and other data can be input and recorded in real time.
NMEA data can be sent to the camera in the following ways:
TCP or UDP over Ethernet
Serial RS232 or RS485
