In addition to the image correction the lenses can be controlled remotely via RS232C. Models equipped with this technology can be focussed and zoomed, and even the aperture and the 2.5x Extender can be remotely controlled.
The software also enables the activation of a reliable autofocus via a single mouse click. This feature represents a major benefit in the super-tele range where the depth of field is typically narrow. Thanks to the open nature of the full command set and its RS232C implementation it is primed for simple integration and custom applications. It is also compatible to standard CCTV colour cameras.
Pentax utilises the PAIR technology in their new H55ZAME-F-PR01 and H55ZAME-F-PR02 systems.
