Basler AG integrates a new "Vignetting Correction" feature into selected ace U and ace L camera models, which allows the correction of edge shadowing in the case of an image circle that is too small in relation to the sensor size.
This allows users to take advantage of smaller, less expensive lenses without sacrificing image quality. After a one-time calibration of the camera, there are no negative effects on frame rate or image quality as the correction values are stored in the camera and automatically taken into account in the image output. Thus, for example, users can combine ace cameras with Sony IMX304 or IMX253 1.1" format sensors with 1" lenses without having to accept any edge shadows. It is no longer necessary to switch to a lens with a larger image circle.
