How Sharp are Wide Angle Camera Lenses?

Wide views give loads of detail at the cost of sharpness
Wide views give loads of detail at the cost of sharpness

HOW sharp are fixed wide angle camera lenses? We do often use angles of view of 90 degrees at F1.6 and we like them as they are set and forget, with no drift of moving parts as you might get with varifocal lenses. But we sometimes wonder if we are missing out on quality with a fixed lens and such a fast aperture. What does SEN think?

A: Typically, any lens is sharpest a couple of stops down from wide open – for an F1.6 lens that will be around F4. The correct apertures to shoot front to back of scenes are the narrowest aperture numbers – F8 at least and preferably F16 or narrower, diffraction (and light levels) permitting.

LSC visits Dahua Technology

DAHUA Technology distributor, LSC Security Supplies reports members of the team were thrilled to be invited to Dahua’s headquarters and factory in Hangzhou, China, earlier this month.

“The economies-of-scale at play with a global company like Dahua are hard to comprehend until you see it in action,” said LSC product manager, Scott Leonard. 

The trip provided a welcome chance for the LSC team to discuss the modifications required to bring 2 speciality products to Australian shores.

“Within a few hours of meeting, the product design team returned with a working prototype, with all modifications in place to suit Australian standards and regulations - a process that would normally take weeks or even months,” said Leonard.

Leonard was tight-lipped as to the specifics of their joint venture but hinted that integrators could expect to get their hands on these customised products in the second quarter of 2018.

Panasonic WV-S2531L Dome Review: First Impressions

Panasonic WV-S2531L Dome from BGWT
Panasonic WV-S2531L Dome from BGWT

Panasonic WV-S2531L Dome from BGWT is an IP66-rated day/night dome with a cast alloy housing and base, 1080p at 30ips and 720p at 60ips, H.264 compression, strong 133dB WDR performance, minimum scene illumination of 0.04 lux in colour and 0.01 in monochrome at F1.3 and 0 lux with IR activated. 

PANASONIC’S WV-S2531L is a solid camera, it’s well built and has an excellent overall specification. Compared to many modern lightweights, the S2531L feels like the real deal with an IP66, NEMA 4X and IK10-rated cast allow housing. You put the camera and base together during setup and that provides ample time to appreciate the thought that has gone into this unit, with its ample cable port, Clearsight and Rainwash Coating. The quality of the build goes under the hood – this camera is well and truly buttoned up – it’s very much old-school Panasonic.
