The existing Fujifilm range of megapixel varifocal lenses includes five models available with P-iris:
Thanks to their IR correction the lenses are suited for day and night use in high definition CCTV applications, for machine vision and traffic applications.
Two lenses for 2/3“ cameras with a resolution of up to 5 megapixels are particularly interesting for the traffic sector: HF35SR4A-JA1L and HF50SR4A- JA1L offer fixed focal lengths from 35 mm to 50 mm. The IR correction of these lenses allows crisp images even without focus shift, in both the visual spectrum and under IR conditions. With its high resolution of 5 megapixels and the P-iris control, these lenses are suitable, for example, for traffic monitoring or automatic licence plate recognition.
P-iris (precise iris) is an automatic iris control, which also allows for manual aperture control. Combined with a suitable camera, the size of the aperture can be optimally adjusted through the built-in step-motor. Image defects that arise with a wide aperture (spherical aberration) or a very small aperture (diffraction blur), can be avoided by a precise iris control resulting in an improved image quality: sharper images from the centre to the edge area and a stable depth of field.
