The AVATAR 10.5mm ƒ/2.8 Hi-g lens is designed specifically for cameras with large image sensors. It features heavy-duty construction and is a perfect compliment to high-speed cameras used in extreme Hi-g applications such as crash tests, impact sleds, airborne and other rugged testing environments.

AVATAR optics feature high-efficiency multi-layer coatings with digital resolution exceeding 6 million pixels. The focus and aperture rings both include 360° clamp locks for maximum control over sharpness and depth of field.

Custom designed stainless-steel lens plates can be ordered for specific camera models. The custom lens plate replaces the manufacturer’s standard lens plate and incorporates a built in C-mount. An optional F-mount with positive lock (eliminating the traditional Nikon lens loose bayonet fit) is available.
