The Tamron 55x ultra high magnification zoom lens is equipped with an optical vibration compensation mechanism, opening a whole new world for lens-integrated surveillance cameras. It boasts a 330 mm ultra telephoto focal length and compact body that can be placed in a small housing.
The market for ultra high magnification zoom lenses was previously limited to special applications such as border monitoring and surveillance at airports, harbors and coastal areas. Lenses conventionally available were bulky, heavy and costly since the systems, including housings and camera platforms, were large. In addition, they were susceptible to image blurring at ultra telephoto settings, which required expensive platforms to prevent camera-shake. These limiting factors hampered expansion of the market.
Tamron offers a solution to those problems with the 55x Ultra High Magnification Zoom Lens with Built-in Optical Vibration Compensation Mechanism, realizing simplicity in systems for ultra high-magnification lenses. The lens boasts a magnification ratio as high as 55x, yet it is compact and equipped with an optical vibration compensation mechanism to minimize blurring due to camera-shake. These features allow it to be installed easily and reduce costs for engineering work.Key Features
