Zoom lenses for digital still cameras

GP registration number OP-37 <GP>

(i)
  • CO2 emissions during product use reduced by 16% (compared to the previous model)

GP registration number OP-28 <GP>

(i)
  • Offers a small but bright lens unit based on original lens design technology for effectively positioning non-spherical lenses. In the camera specs, when using the same battery, this lens contributes to an improvement of about 40% more picture captures compared to cameras with a previous model installed due its reduction in power consumption.
(ii)
  • In the tough digital camera field, provides industry's top level of robust construction (drop resistant up to 2 meters) to withstand heavy use by customers
  • 15.4% weight reduction (compared to previous device)

GP Registration No. OP-18 <GP>

(i)
  • While maintaining optical performance, product lifecycle CO2 emissions (during lens manufacturing) have been lowered by 11.1% by reducing the number of lens elements compared to the previous model.

Green Products registration number: OP-7 <GP>

(i)
  • 14.2% reduction in CO2 emissions throughout product life cycle (as assessed at time of lens production).
(ii)
  • 5.3% weight reduction (compared to previous device).

Green Products registration number: OP-6 <GP>

(ii)
  • 52% of volume reduction and 57% of weight reduction (compared to previous device).

Green Products Registration No. OT-6 <GP>

(i)
  • 12% of volume reduction (compared to our previous device).

Green Products Registration No. OT-5 <GP>

(i)
  • 11% reduction of CO2 emissions from manufacturing process of lenses (compared to our previous device).
(ii)
  • 16% of weight reduction (compared to our previous device).

Green Products Registration No. OT-2 <GP>

(ii)
  • 24% of weight reduction (compared to our previous device).

Zoom lenses for camcorders

GP registration number OP-3 <GP>

(ii)
  • 6.5% of volume reduction and 14.1% of weight reduction (compared to previous device).

BD/DVD/CD-compatible plastic single objective lens for optical disks

GP registration number OP-11 <GPplus>
GP registration number OP-5 <GPplus>
GP registration number OP-4 <GPplus>

(ii)
* The industry's first BD/ DVD/CD-compatible plastic single objective lens for optical disks using diffraction optics technology. The use of petroleum-based resources has been reduced by over 79% (compared to our conventional devices).
* Smaller size made possible by reducing approximately 45% off the total length and outside diameter (compared to our conventional devices).

 OP-11 OP-5 OT-4

GP registration number OT-4 <GPplus>

(ii)
* The industry's first BD/ DVD/CD-compatible plastic single objective lens for optical disks using diffraction optics technology. The use of petroleum-based resources has been reduced by over 50% (compared to our conventional devices).
* Smaller size made possible by reducing approximately 30% off the total length and outside diameter (compared to our conventional devices).
