Far infrared zoom lenses

Share this on social media:

Tamron, based in Saitama, Japan, has released two prototype zoom lens models designed for far infrared imaging with its Vibration Compensation (VC) system built in.

The two lenses include a 14-40mm and 35-105mm, addressing the needs for both wide-angle and telephoto coverage with versatility in use with a 3x zoom ratio. Integration of the VC feature enhances practical values, delivering crisp IR images without blurring caused by camera vibration.

The lenses can be used in fever detection vision systems, for detecting heat of an electric wire before a fire breaks out, or monitoring the thermal profile of equipment in a dark environment.
