Applies to: All Reolink Cameras
A lens is a transmissive optical device that focuses or disperses a light beam by means of refraction. A simple lens consists of a single piece of transparent material, while a compound lens consists of several simple lenses (elements), usually arranged along a common axis. Lenses are made from materials such as glass or plastic and are ground and polished or molded to a desired shape. A lens can focus light to form an image, unlike a prism, which refracts light without focusing.
Fixed focus lens
Auto iris or Manual Iris
The lenses of Reolink cameras are mainly divided into a fixed focus lens and zoom lens. The zoom lens can adjust the focal length within a certain range, but the focus lens can't. So the zoom lens is more convenient, especially when there are some places where it can't move forward or backward.
