Share this on social media:

Videor is now distributing a range of 10 Megapixel lenses from Japanese company Kowa, which specialises in lenses for image processing and the security market.

The 10-megapixel lenses in the Kowa JC10M series are the ideal choice for applications with ultimate demands in which, for instance, the finest of structures on a large surface must be inspected. Earlier, it was necessary to use several cameras at the same time to record these numerous details correctly per unit of area. The high resolution of the JC10M series means it can replace numerous lower resolution lenses – of course this requires a matching camera. There is a choice of 2/3-inch lenses with fixed focal lengths of 5mm, 8.5mm, 12mm, 16mm, 25mm, 35mm and 50mm. What is more, a special feature of Kowa lenses is their extremely short minimum object distance (MOD) of only 10cm.
