Lenses with a M12x0.5mm thread are officially called S-Mount lenses, though “M12 lenses” or simply “board lenses” is more commonly used, as they are often used with board cameras. They are the most common “mini lenses”.
These days this is still the most common type in industrial image processing, esp. in factory automization. Mostly they are used with digital cameras like USB, Fire_Wire, Gig-E and Smart Cameras.
While other lens types behave like the human eye (things that come nearer appear to grow) – Telecentric lenses keep the size of objects! This makes them perfectly suited for measurement applications.
