This topic provides technical specifications for the different types of lenses that are used in Vicon Vantage cameras. For details of specific lenses, contact Vicon or your nearest agent or distributor.

Vantage cameras are fitted with lenses suitable for the system use you specified on ordering. The lens fitted to the camera is determined by various factors, including the focal length, which defines the Field of View (FOV), and the aperture range. The latter affects the amount of light seen by the image sensor and also governs the depth of field, the distance from the camera where the image is in focus.

Caution
Vicon Vantage cameras contain no user-serviceable components. For all servicing, and any alterations, including lens or strobe change, you must return the camera to Vicon. Any attempt by you or any third party to alter or repair a Vantage camera may invalidate its warranty.
