Other lenses for 1/3 inch CCD cameras can be mounted on this camera. However, high resolution scanning of this camera may not be fully used for full-scanning (1280 x 960) or partial scanning (960 x 720).

It is recommended to use a dedicated high-resolution lens when shooting a dark subject with the aperture opened.

Focus adjustment

Focus adjustment

When shooting an object using an AF lens, the first adjusted focus may be out-of-focus depending on the focal depth of the lens in use. In this case, focus on a darker object with the aperture open to prevent out-of-focus.

When "ABF" is selected for "BACK-FOCUS" on the SETUP menu (

→ page 18), the camera can automatically focus on a subject with the best available conditions even when the illumination changes.

• Under near-infrared light, the focus may be slightly out-of-focus than under visible light.

When the "BACK-FOCUS SETUP" page is displayed and "AUTO" or "PRESET" is selected for "C/L

←→ B/W" using the operation buttons on the camera, the camera can focus on subjects both under near-infrared light and under visible light.

(However, the camera will not change the focus according to the illumination change when the focus had been adjusted once.)

How to use a varifocal lens

Before adjusting the varifocal lens, reset the back focal length position to the default position for the CS-mount (by simultaneously pressing the [LEFT] and [RIGHT] buttons for 2 seconds or more, or by simultaneously pressing the [LEFT] and [RIGHT] buttons after pressing the [SET] button when the cursor is on "MANUAL-ADJ" on the "BACK-FOCUS SETUP" page.

Method of adjustment may be different depending on the lens in use. For further information, refer to the operating instructions of the lens in use.

Notes:

• The following are descriptions of how to adjust a normal varifocal lens. For further information, refer to the operating instructions of the lens in use.

1. Focus on a subject which is located around 10 m away or farther to adjust the back focal length.

2. When using an 8x or 10x varifocal lens, adjust the back focal length after setting the zoom to the WIDE end and settings the focus to the FAR end.

When using a 2x or 3x varifocal lens, adjust the back focal length after setting the zoom to the TELE end and settings the focus to the FAR end.

3. Locate a subject at the center and roughly adjust the angular field of view and the focus by adjusting the zoom position and the focus position. Then, adjust the back focal length minutely. (

→ page 17)

• When the lens in use is not Panasonic's and whose focus range is scalable, adjust the back focal length after setting the focus position to one step short of the FAR end in step 2. When adjusting the focus in the scalable range, focus may not be adjusted appropriately.

How to use a fixed-focus lens
