Sony continues to expand its popular XCD IEEE1394b camera series with the latest introduction of its ultra-compact and lightweight, monochrome XCD-MV6.

This new progressive scan camera incorporates a 1/3 type wide VGA global shutter CMOS sensor and is one of the smallest IEEE1394b cameras on the market.
