Identify a Solution Using Our M12 Lens Finder and Field of view Calculator

Input: Select your sensor, sensor format type, or enter your sensor's output pixel information.
Output: The field of view of each lens is calculated. Image circle coverage (%) is calculated for fisheyes.
Usability: Filter, sort, then open individual product pages for detailed specs and samples.

Our calculator includes advanced distortion models: the web's most accurate wide-angle and fisheye FoV values.

Surveillance?

Our low F#, high resolution lenses are suitable for 180° dome cameras, low light, and active IR illuminated scenes.

Aerial Robotics?

Our light-weight, miniature lenses are ideal for collision avoidance, long-distance viewing, and end-customer viewing.

Does it Require an IP65+ Lens?

We offer IP65+ variants of many lenses. These are suitable for applications  exposed to the environment, without a window.

Surveillance?

Our low F#, high resolution lenses are suitable for 180° dome cameras, low light, and active IR illuminated scenes.

Consumer / AR+VR?

Our high resolution fisheye lenses will let you design 360° cameras and and stereographic lenses are equivalent to "GoPro" lenses.

Video Conferencing?

Our wide-angle, low distortion, high resolution M12 lenses result in optimal object deformation without post-processing.
