Common in lenses in the broadcast industry, the 3-Cam design is incorporated in the Kowa LMVZ655 1/2" 6.5 to 52mm Varifocal Lens (Manual Iris). This innovative system has solved the problem of de-centering which sometimes occurs in the conventional pole system. Not only is the movement of the lens impaired by de-centering, but the optical performance suffers too. The 3-Cam design also reduces internal reflection. As a result, the image obtained by this design is much sharper than that of the conventional pole system. With the 3-Cam design, the customer can expect higher optical performance and a longer service life.
