Olympus Corporation Announces the Launch of Series C Entry-Level Industrial Videoscope

Olympus Corporation announced that its Scientific Solutions Business is commencing with the simultaneous worldwide release of its Series C industrial endoscope for the internal inspection of factory pipes, automotive components, and other equipment. Industrial endoscopes are nondestructive testing instruments suitable for inspecting spaces with no or limited visual access such as factory piping or aircraft engines. Videoscopes such as the Series C have a CCD built into the distal end of the scope to generate high quality images that can be viewed on the unit's LCD monitor. The Series C videoscope is an entry-level industrial videoscope that complements the existing series of Olympus IPLEX industrial videoscopes that combine maneuverability and high image quality with a range of functions to conduct accurate inspections. The latest Series C model is a new entry-level industrial videoscope from Olympus’ line of industrial endoscopes. Featuring the same clear, high-quality images as the high-end IPLEX models, the Series C model is suitable for use in diverse inspection workplaces, providing a high level of durability with a compact and portable design. The instrument is designed with functions required for both routine and simple non-routine inspections, combining simple operation with excellent cost-effective performance to boost productivity and lower cost.

Olympus Corporation Announces Launch of M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO lens

Olympus Corporation has announced the launch of M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO lens in June 2015. This lens is the world's first1 f1.8, 180° diagonal angle of view, and high-performance fisheye lens that conforms to the Micro Four Thirds System standard. This is the world's first fast, f1.8 fisheye lens with both amazing optical performance and a 180° diagonal angle of view. Even at the fast, maximum aperture value of f1.8, image quality is excellent from the center to the edges of the image, making it possible to shoot in situations that were unable before, from nightscapes, to astrophotography, and underwater photography. The 12 cm closest focusing distance (approximately 2.5 cm from the end of the lens) makes new expressions in macro photography possible that are only available on a fisheye lens. This product is a lens in the M.Zuiko PRO category, featuring excellent optical performance, and a splash & dust-proof construction that ensures excellent image quality in any situation. This is the world's first f1.8 fast fisheye lens with a diagonal 180° angle of view. While the previously released bright fisheye lenses achieve an aperture value of f2.8 at the maximum, a diameter of 1.3 steps brighter than that is utilized for a faster shutter speed, making it possible to capture not only hand-held nightscapes but also starscapes when combined with powerful in-body image stabilization. Shooting possibilities are expanded even further by reducing subject blur when shooting underwater and extending the distance of the flash. With its maximum aperture value of f1.8, this lens provides amazing high resolution that surpasses the popular, high-grade Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f3.5 Fisheye lens. The maximum aperture can be used for shooting nightscapes and starscapes while maintaining superb optical performance and resolution from the center to the edges of the image. The amazing optical performance thoroughly corrects for chromatic and comatic aberration for accurate rendering of points of light as actual points, such as in the case of stars in the sky. They also ensure optical performance to minimize corner shading. To ensure superb image quality from the maximum aperture setting, special lenses are lavishly used, such as Super ED lens, ED lens, Super HR lens, and HR lens. An HR lens is used for the front of the lens to reduce lens diameter, and keep the lens unit compact and lightweight while achieving a large-diameter f1.8 aperture value. ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) Coating is used effectively to minimize ghosts and flaring, creating a lens that is resistant to backlit situations. This lens is one of the M.Zuiko PRO category, featuring excellent optical performance, and a rugged splash and dust-proof construction that ensures excellent image quality in any situation. Special sealing in six locations provides powerful protection against ingress of dust and splashes, maintaining splash and dust-proof performance, as well as a freezeproof construction down to -10°C for reliable performance in any outdoor environment or nature photography situation.
