C-Mount Adapters 0.35x-0.70x

A C-mount is a type of lens mount commonly found on 16mm movie cameras, closed-circuit television cameras, and trinocular microscope phototubes.

C-mount lenses provide a male thread which mates with a female thread on the camera. The thread is nominally 1.000 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter, with 32 threads per inch, designated as "1-32 UN 2A" in the ANSI B1.1 standard for unified screw threads. The flange focal distance is 17.526 millimetres (0.6900 in) for a C mount.

The C-mount specification has several dimensions associated with it:

  • Mounting Thread = 1 inch x 32 tpi UN 2A
  • Length of Lens Thread = 3.8mm
  • Lens Flange Focal Distance = 17.52mm
  • Camera Depth (C-Mount Face to Image) = 17.52mm

The above dimensions are employed by all C-Mount lens manufacturers as well as all C-Mount camera manufacturers in order for any lens and camera combination to image properly.

How To Select The Right Magnification

Camera sensor sizes (diagonal measurement in mm) will have a corresponding magnification.  Sensor specific optimisation makes the best FOV for your camera.

  • Camera Chip Size 1/3" - Diagonal 6 mm - Recommended Magnification = 0.35x
  • Camera Chip Size 1/2" - Diagonal 8 mm - Recommended Magnification = 0.50x-0.55x
  • Camera Chip Size 2/3" - Diagonal 11 mm - Recommended Magnification = 0.63x-0.70x
