  • Patent number: 4183639
    Abstract: A movie camera is shown with a zoom lens capable of automatic focus by movement of the lens system closest to the camera body instead of the front objective. As a result the system is more efficient because the heavy large front objective is fixed during automatic focusing and the focusing system need only move a smaller lens or group of lenses which are closer to the camera body. The variator, the compensator, the fourth lens group or any combination of them can be adjusted for automatic focusing.

  • Patent number: 4174892
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for automatically focusing a camera is described in which the camera has a stationary optical path and a scanning optical path for developing focusing signals. The scanning optical path is caused to undergo a range-finding reciprocation in which it reciprocates between first and second limit positions, as between the minimum lens focusing position and the infinite lens focusing position. Two focusing signals are generated during the range-finding reciprocation and the interval between the focusing signals is used to derive the distance to the subject. The lens is then positioned in accordance with the derived distance to the subject.
