Find A Lens For Your Project Using our Advanced M12 Lens Calculator

Start with Off-the-Shelf Lenses for Your Prototype

We provide cost-effective M12 lenses and CS mount lenses to help you get started quickly. Our M12 lens calculator provides the Field of View of our lenses on any sensor.

An M12 lens is a small lens for 12mm diameter threaded mounts. Our lenses range from 1mm to 25mm EFL and include fisheye, wide-angle, and no-distortion lenses.
