Tamron Releases LWIR 3X Zoom Lens

The company is billing the lens as the most lightweight one in the world.

COMMACK, N.Y. — Tamron announces the release of the LWIR 3X zoom lens for VGA detectors 50-150mm F/1.6 (Model: LVZ3X5016N).

Compared to other telephoto-range lenses, the company says the LWIR 3X zoom lens’ compactness allows for continued use of existing housings or those available in general size and specs.

The lens’ optical zooming is said to be adopted for the adjustment of the lens’ angle of view, which assures image quality free of artifacts associated with digital zoom processing. This feature, according to Tamron, unlocks new security and video surveillance applications that have not been easy to implement using fixed-focal lenses.

Tamron says LWIR technology assures clear images under adverse lighting or weather conditions, as well as high optical performance. The company also says it is the world’s most lightweight LWIR 3X zoom lens.
