new telecentric lenses at Edmund Optics

Post by rjlittlefield »

From the rear cover of Edmund Optics catalog B171C, Master Source Book:

Image

The URL given for more info is http://www.edmundoptics.com/titantl .

The lens being held appears to be their #34-018, specified as 0.093X, Horizontal FOV 186.3 mm on 4/3" sensor. List price $8950.

It looks to me like the "242mm" spec shown in the illustration refers to image diagonal, 22.5 mm for a 4/3 sensor at 0.093X = 242 mm.

They have smaller ones, of course.

Fortunately, the weight of the camera would probably place negligible strain on the mounting flange of the lens, which is specified as 8 x 8mm through holes. :shock:

I don't see that they specify the weight of the lens, but I expect that their engineering staff would have that number handy.

So who would the customers be for this type of lens and what sort of things would they photograph with it?
