Tamron’s first block camera featuring 30x zoom and global shutter imaging

Tamron has launched its first global shutter block camera, the MP2030M-GS, equipped with Sony’s IMX265, an industrial grade 1/1.8” Global Shutter CMOS sensor.

This camera is combined with a built-in high-power 30x zoom lens and is suitable for both wide angle and telephoto pictures, and is available from FRAMOS.

The sensor used in this device provides 3.19 megapixel resolution with high light sensitivity and is said to guarantee excellent picture quality with low noise. There is a possibility to select between various output modes – from NTSC/PAL to 1080p/60. The Global Shutter CMOS type imager prevents motion blur in the images when capturing fast moving objects. The lens has a 30x optical and 16x digital zoom which gives it a zoom range from 6-180mm optical and up to 2880mm equivalent focal length using the digital zoom. This fully capable lens makes this block camera quite suitable for a wide variety of working distances. The field of view is between 60° and 2.5° and features a f-stop between 1.5 and 4.8, depending on the zoom factor.

The MP2030M-GS camera module has both LVDS and composite video and can be controlled via VISCA. The industry and product experts at FRAMOS are available to support customers with the integration of these new cameras into their applications and projects. In addition, FRAMOS provides support services for development, customised solutions, and logistics.
