The Sony VCL-03S12XM is a special industrial lens for cameras with 1/3 or 1/2 inch imagers. The lens provides a wide angle of view from its 3.5mm focal length. On a 1/2-inch camera it supplies 106° horizontal angle of view. On 1/3-inch cameras it shows 79° horizontal. This specialty lens is applicable to the following cameras:
- Special NF Mount
- The VCL-03S12XM uses a special mounting system for particular industrial cameras. The NF mount is applicable to custom set-up, remote head cameras such as the XC-55BB, the XC-999/P and XC-777A/P.
- Wide Angle and Low Lighting
- The VCL-03S12XM delivers a very wide angle of view, whether sitting on a 1/2 or 1/3 inch camera. On the 1/2-inch camera it delivers over 100° horizontal angle of view. And even on a 1/3-inch camera it still produces a wide 80º horizontal. Its maximum iris opening is an f/1.8 which is wide enough to capture images in lower lighting environments. The iris has a range to f/16 which is small enough to use during very bright direct light conditions.
