A really smart camera

More than once I’ve extolled the merits of liquid lenses that can be focused through software. Now it seems SVS-Vistek has taken this further with their new EVO-Tracer camera.
Accordingly to the press release, (there’s nothing on the SVS-Vistek website as I write this,) “Focus, iris and zoom are now controllable directly from the camera over the GigE Vision interface without any additional cabling.”
I’m hugely excited about this and can’t wait to get my hands on one. If I could get to Vision 2012, where I imagine SVS-Vistek will have a camera on display, I would, but unfortunately I have projects to attend to in other parts of the world.
