reckons that small is beautiful and customers evaluating its new ultra-compact camera seem to agree.
“We are only just starting to work with partners to evaluate the product and we are looking for their feedback,” Tamron graduate engineer Velina Zhekova said at Intertraffic 2016 yesterday. “So far all the feedback has been amazing.”
The MP1010M-VC camera module weighs in at an incredible 77g and its dimensions are 58.4mm x 41.5mm x 31.9mm and it features what Tamron said is an industry-first – a vibration compensation feature that ensures stable images even from moving platforms.
“It’s got a powerful zoom lens but you will still get stable images even when you zoom in on your subject,” said Zhekova. “Normally, the more you zoom in on something, the more that vibration will affect the image. But not with this product.”
That impressive feature is being demonstrated on the company’s stand.
Aimed at the security and surveillance markets, the camera is being trialled on drones. “Because it is so light, it is ideal for this use.”
