IP Box Camera Lens
IP Box Camera Lens – 2 MegaPixel 5.0-50mm Lens
This is a lens that needs to be added to an IP box camera. Box cameras do not come with a lens so you must add one a la carte. This is a good one because it can see between 5-55mm. That is a really good lens for seeing 5ft to 200ft away. A pretty good versatile lens. If you wanted to see a wide angle you might want a lens that is closer to 2.8-3.6mm.
General Info about Camera Lens
A camera lens (also known as a photographic lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically or electronically.
There is no major difference in principle between a lens used for a still camera, a video camera, a telescope, a microscope, or other apparatus, but the detailed design and construction are different. A lens may be permanently fixed to a camera, or it may be interchangeable with lenses of different focal lengths, apertures, and other properties.
Lenses are arguably the most important part of your camera set-up, they make or break your picture.
Different types of lens
Lenses are generally categorized by their focal range or specific function if they’re a specialist lens.
