  • Publication number: 20220137325
    Abstract: A lens barrel and an imaging device which can be miniaturized, the lens barrel with a movable cylinder that moves along the optical axis with a change in focal length; first and second drive units in the movable cylinder; and first and second lens driven by the first and second drive units respectively to move along the optical axis relative to the movable cylinder. The movement amount of the first lens relative to the cylinder when the focal length is changed to a second focal length from a first state where the first lens is at a position closest to a subject with a first focal length is less than the movement amount of the first lens relative to the cylinder when the focal length is changed to the second focal length from a second state where the first lens is closer to an image plane than the first state.

  • Publication number: 20220026692
    Abstract: A zoom optical system (ZL) comprises a plurality of lens groups (G1-G7), and upon zooming distances between adjacent lens groups change. The zoom optical system comprises a focusing lens group (G5,G6) that moves upon focusing and an image-side lens group ((G7) disposed adjacent to an image side of the focusing lens group. The zoom optical system satisfies a following conditional expression. 0.000<dL0t/dL1t<1.000 where dL0t: a distance on an optical axis between the focusing lens group and the image-side lens group upon focusing on an infinity object in a telephoto end state, and dL1t: a distance on the optical axis between the focusing lens group and the image-side lens group upon focusing on a short-distance object in the telephoto end state.

  • Patent number: 10649448
    Abstract: A plant monitoring apparatus according to an embodiment includes a determiner and a display processor. The determiner compares a first process value acquired in time series from a first point of a monitoring target in a plant and a limit value corresponding to the first process value to determine a time when the first process value exceeds the limit value. The display processor causes a display device to display, in time series, the first process value within a time range decided on the basis of the time obtained by the determiner and the limit value corresponding to the first process value.
