depth of field

When a lens is focused on an object, theoretically, the whole plane passing through the object and perpendicular to the optical axis should be in focus. Practically, objects slightly in front of and behind the object in focus will also appear sharp. This “extra” depth of sharpness is called depth of field. A wide depth …

When a light ray traveling through air or a vacuum enters a denser medium, it reduces its speed by index of refraction. Different media (which are transparent to light) have different indices of refraction. For example, the speed of light in air is 300,000 km/s and almost the same as in vacuum. If a light …

Lens Form Factors for Image Sensor

Sensor sizes are specified by the diagonal and mainly include 1/4″, 1/3”, and 1/2″. A lens can fit in with a smaller sensor. When using with a larger-sized sensor, for example, a 1/4” lens with a 1/3” sensor, the situation of dark corners in the image will be caused.

Wide Dynamic Range

A camera with WDR wide dynamic range is able to operate in variable light conditions, especially in high contrast situations. When shooting in high contrast, backlight, glare and light reflection environments such as the entrance, ATM or the window side, the object will appear dark and unrecognizable. WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology can ensure an …
