Commonlands is your resource for building cameras. Our calculators, resources, and products work for many applications, whether you are creating a camera for Surveillance, Industrial Inspection, or Video Conferencing. Once you've determined your system requirements, we offer products to simplify your development process. If you plan to design a mass production ready camera, we can direct you to trusted industry partners.Get Started with a CS Mount Lens
Start with Our Camera Calculators and Design Resources
Launch Your Design.
Wondering how to calculate the field of view or depth of field? You've come to the right place! Our calculators let you determine which lens and sensor combination is best for your project. Our high-quality lens product lineup provides quality visibility and assurance before you buy. Reduce the early prototyping time of your guess-check-iterate engineering iterations and get it right the first time!Go To Our Camera Calculators
Purchase a CS Mount Lens for Security Cameras and the Raspberry Pi 12MP Camera
Keep it Simple with a CS Mount Lens.
CS-mount lenses provide direct compatibility with CS cameras, like the Raspberry Pi High-Quality Camera. These lenses make it easy to build custom cameras such as a Video Conferencing Camera or a Raspberry Pi Security Camera system.
4K+ CS Mount Lenses for 12MP Cameras with Image Sensors up to 1/1.7" in size
Lower Cost CS Mount Lenses for DIY Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera Projects
Important! CS-mount lenses are not compatible with C Mount cameras. On average, C Mount camera lenses have lower resolution than CS Mount camera lenses, so we do not offer any C mount lenses. For more information about lens mounts and camera compatibility please review our knowledge base page Lens Mounts 101.
Find a Miniature Lens which is compatible with 1/2.3" 12MP+ Cameras
Improve Your Camera with an S Mount Lens.
More Glass does not always result in better resolution! Our miniature M12 lenses provide better performance than the Raspberry Pi High Quality 6mm lens at a fraction of the size. Each of these lenses is compatible with the off-the-shelf 12MP Raspberry Pi High-Quality camera when a CS-mount adapter is used.
