This technology allows more light to reach the image sensor. The lenses also include special internal features that significantly reduce stray light. In addition, the rugged hard carbon coating on the exterior lens surface provides excellent durability. Owl-IR products can be purchased in standard focal lengths of 18mm, 25mm, 50mm, 75mm, and 100mm. About LightWorks Optical Systems LightWorks Optical Systems, Inc.
