Axis offers a wide range of network cameras with the possibility to change lenses. Use the Lens calculator and Accessory selector to help you find the right CS or M12 lens to capture the images you need. Our optional lenses give you the benefits of a flexible installation.
For surveillance flexibility
For maximum surveillance flexibility, our selection of CS and M12 lenses offers varying fields of view, levels of zoom, and light sensitivity to ensure you capture quality images even in challenging light conditions. A wide-angle lens provides a larger field of view with less detail, whereas a telephoto lens provides a narrower field of view with finer details. In addition, selecting the correct f-number helps ensure no area of the screen is too dark or too bright, whereas a fixed or adjustable iris can control how much light comes through the lens.

Choosing the right lens
Before choosing a camera, you need to define the specifications of your project, such as resolution, angle of view, depth of field, and lighting conditions. Once you know these parameters, you can select the right camera for your needs. Use our Product selector and Lens calculator to find out which of our camera offerings meet your requirements.
If the lens that comes with the camera doesn’t meet your requirements, you can choose another compatible lens. Check the Compatible products section on the product page for the camera or lens, or use the Lens calculator or Accessory selector.
