Optical Zoom has still its place

POSTED 03/01/2018

An optical Zoom system is still necessary for changing magnifications without a great loss of resolution. Resolution is defined by the aperture of the system and aperture is still dependent on the optics not on the camera. Furthermore megapixel cameras are not that inexpensive so that one can cover a 7x or 12x magnification only by increasing the sensor size.

Opto delivers all types of optical zooms for high demanding OEM and integration work. Especially for micro detection and with motorized versions Opto has to be your choice.
