Autofocus for sensor video cameras

Canon announces an upgrade that brings dual pixel CMOS AF functionality (DAF) to its professional EOS C100 camcorder. First launched with the EOS 70D DSLR, dual pixel CMOS AF expands shooting possibilities by providing smooth, fast, high-performance continuous autofocus in large sensor video cameras. The EOS C100 is the first camcorder to feature this technology, […]

Reed element for T-slot cylinder sensors

A reed element now also belongs to Ifm’s family of T-slot cylinder sensors for the AC/DC voltage range up to 120 V. The sensor’s response sensitivity to magnetic field changes is comparable to that of common electronic cylinder sensors. The Ifm sensor can be locked in the T-slot by its self-locking mechanism and the fixing […]
