Pentax 12~660mm motorized auto iris zoom lens
With a built-in 2x range extender option - a motorised optical device that can be introduced from the control room at the push of a button – it is transformed into a 1320mm lens, easily allowing observation over 1 km distant (in accordance with PSDB guidelines: ⅓" camera, recognition at 587.65m / 1175.30m with range extender)
Among the first happy customers for this lens are artillery ranges where it has been made possible for observers to verify that a given field of fire is clear of personnel before shooting commences. Equally, for offshore ballistics work the Pentax 12~660 makes it possible to 'beach-comb' vast stretches of shoreline to recognise shell casings or even unexploded ordnance and other potentially hazardous flotsam.
The lens is less likely to feature in town and city centre surveillance schemes, but for what specialist applications there are – the Pentax 12~660mm zoom lens delivers premium performance.
