New High Quality Wide-Angle Lens With Fixing Screw

Main characteristics of new high quality wide-angle lens with fixing screw:

  • C-Mount wide-angle lens
  • Fixing screw
  • Compact and robust

One of the most common problems of wide-angle lenses is that of distortion. Take for example the H612A, which exemplifies unsharpness and distortion toward the rim of the image. Naturally, for metrology applications - like for example the measurement of distances - such distortion is inconvenient as the required camera calibration and post-acquisition image correction is extremely time-consuming and therefore cost-intensive.

The B618CX-2 on the other hand does not suffer from this problem. Thank to its large image circle, the low level of distortion is unmatchable by any other lens in its price category.

Up until now there has not been a lens, which has the low level of distortion exhibited by the B618CX-2 and at the same time, whose iris and focus can be fixed into place with the conveniently located fixing screws.

This is no longer the case: The Imaging Source is proud to announce that it is the first company world-wide to offer the B618CX-2(KA) - with fixing screw - at an unbeatable price of EUR 280.19 / USD 283.00.
