Kowa – Megapixel

Megapixel Series

XC Series

MEGAPIXEL LENS SERIES FOR 4/3″ SENSORS(Φ23mm IMAGE SIZE)

  • Large image size of Φ23mm incorporated within a C-mount design.
  • Megapixel resolution is maintained throughout the entire image even when the iris is fully opened.
  • High precision aspherical lens greatly reduces distortion and produces a high-definition picture.
  • The LM8XC generates a very wide 93.5° horizontal angle of view.
  • Kowa’s floating mechanism system virtually eliminates optical aberrations from close distance to infinity.
