If you’ve ever been watching wildlife shows and wondered how the camera crew got so close to wild animals, then you’ve been tricked like the rest of us by the clever use of telephoto lenses, which are built to cut down the focal length of a camera and make objects seem a lot closer than they really are. This, while being relatively basic and used throughout centuries in items like spyglasses, is a very valuable tool to have for photography, as it lets users enjoy more freedom on where they can install cameras without having to compromise on image quality. This is why we love the idea of this tiny but powerful IMX477 Camera 25mm Telephoto C-Mount Lens, which is designed to fit directly onto the end of the awesome Raspberry Pi IMX477 High Quality Camera Module, to provide a good 25mm focal length and open up fresh new opportunities and ways for you to take advantage of the great quality of the IMX477 sensor.

Of course, some of you may know that a zoom lens is not exactly the same as a telephoto lens, but to make things easier to understand for non-camera-enthusiasts, this telephoto lens acts like an analog zoom, and whereas digital zoom typically reduces quality, the analog style keeps image quality crisp and clear due to the technique of focusing light rather than digital post-processing, resulting in the same camera quality you’re used to, but just made to appear much closer. This is ideal for situations in which you need a closer view but can’t install your camera any closer, as well as for portable applications in which you may want to take a nice high quality photo but can’t get close enough to the subject to get a good shot. No matter how you use this lens though, it’s great to know that it is ready to offer the functionality you need, when you need it most, with the extra benefit of it being a purely optional mounting lens that you can choose to use, or leave out.

If you have one of the cool IMX477 Camera Modules for your Raspberry Pi projects and love the idea of mountable lenses like this one, consider also checking out the other items in our C/CS-Mount Range, so that you can get the ideal lens mount (or multiple of them!) to suit whatever experimentation and project needs you may have.

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
