Kowa JC10M Series - used for 3D production!

Kowa JC10M lens series has been used for the first 3D production from ZDF for a documentary about two extreme-climbing brothers, the "Huberbuam", famously known for their film "To The Limit".
ZDF tested Kowa lenses in combination with sinaCAM and decided to use it for their first 3D HD production. The astonishing resolution and image quality as well as the wide range of different focal lengths gives Kowa a unique position in this high-end market for C-mount HD-camera accessories!

TP556 – innovative flexible telephoto lens system.

Kowa is introducing and innovative high-end telephoto F-mount lenses system. This new flexible system is adjustable for 3 different focal lengths using same master lens and can be used alternatively as a spotting scope.
The master lens TP556 is designed as a 500mm/F5.6 F-mount lens. To minimize chromatic aberration (color blur) that occurs in long focal length lenses, the [PROMINAR] telephoto lens utilizes one pure fluorite crystal lens and two XD (eXtra-low-Dispersion) lenses. Bringing together the advanced optical technology fostered through decades of optics development (industrial optics and sporting optics) with the use of a fluorite crystal lens has produced a camera lens with extremely high contrast and sharp image.
The converter TX07 can be fixed by a bayonet mount to the master lens and changes the optical system to a 350mm/F4.0 lens. In combination with the TX17 adapter the lens specification will change to 850mm/F9.6.
