Large format lenses

EMERALD Lens F2.8 28mm F-Mount SD

Large-format lenses are specifically designed for use with large-format cameras in machine vision applications. These lenses are characterized by their ability to cover a larger image circle that matches the size of the camera's image sensor format. In industrial applications, large-format lenses are often used when high-resolution imaging and precise detail capture are required.
