Tamron announces Mega-pixel format Vari-Focal Lenses for security cameras

Tamron announced today the Release of two 1/3”-format 2.8-8mm F/1.2 Vari-Focal lenses (Models M13VM288IR / M13VG288IR) that are compatible with 3-Mega-pixel-Day/Night cameras and deliver full high-definition 1080p images over the entire focal length range, both in visible and near-infrared light ranges. Through the use of an Aspherical element and a special LD (Low Dispersion) optical glass material in its advanced optical system, the new Tamron Vari-Focal lenses realize high optical performance that is a perfect match for 3-Mega -pixel cameras, delivering high image quality equivalent to 1080p full high-definition. The Tamron lenses feature fast maximum open aperture of F/1.2 that helps to increase the sensitivity of the camera.

The new Tamron Mega-Pixel-IR -corrected lenses use an optical design pursuing minimization of chromatic aberration to the maximum extent in order to realize clear images without color smear. In addition, by employing advanced countermeasures against light reflection on the lens surface including multi-layer coatings, Tamron engineers have successfully minimized the light reflection, realizing clear images without ghosting and flare.
