In the world of action cameras, where capturing life’s most thrilling moments demands uncompromised performance, Sheba Microsystems is a trailblazer.
Since their inception, Action cameras have not featured autofocus systems. This is mainly due to the absence of reliable actuation solutions that are capable of withstanding challenging environmental conditions – which are, of course, commonplace anywhere an action camera is in use!
These challenging environmental conditions can include temperature variations, as well as the intense mechanical shocks often created by the adventurers themselves.
From parasailing, hang-gliding, to snowboarding, surfing and more – these cameras must withstand a lot of bumps.
But, since there have been no good autofocus solutions available for action cameras, current models experience image quality degradation caused by the thermal expansion of the lens assembly when temperatures fluctuate.
Sheba has Solved this Known Challenge for the Action Camera Industry
Our revolutionary autofocus technology, empowered by MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) actuators, has redefined the potential for action cameras. This groundbreaking innovation not only enhances image quality but also equips these cameras with the ruggedness to endure the most challenging conditions on earth and beyond.
Oh, the Places You’ll Go: Rugged, Thermally Stable Technology for the True Adventurer
Sheba Microsystems’ MEMS autofocus technology is a game-changer for action enthusiasts.
By harnessing the precision and ruggedness of MEMS actuators, we have developed a technology that enables action cameras to excel in maintaining a consistent high-quality imaging whether in extreme cold or high temperature environmental conditions.
This ability is now made possible by solving the thermal expansion of the lens assembly at extreme weather conditions.
Incredibly, Sheba’s uPistons’ autofocus actuators enable focus adjustment to maintain images sharp across the temperature range (-40 to +100 °C) !
So, whether you’re capturing high-speed extreme sports or exploring the depths of the ocean, action vision cameras can now deliver stunning clarity with this new stability made possible only by Sheba Microsystems proprietary technology.
Sheba MEMS Autofocus Actuators: The Ideal Solution for Action Cameras
Sheba’s uPistons autofocus technology has been developed out of labs at the University of Toronto and further refined over the past decade by the Sheba team of world-leading MEMS engineers, undergoing rigorous reliability tests, including thermal shock, thermal cycling, vibration, mechanical shock, drop, tumble, and microdrop tests.
The MEMS autofocus actuators are incredibly stiff, ensuring minimal movement even in the harshest shock environments. They can maintain the image focus even during shocks more than 50 g’s, enabling high pixel count image sensors and shallow depth of focus for lenses.
Capture every detail with confidence. Sheba Microsystems’ MEMS autofocus technology, driven by robust MEMS actuators, is a game-changer for action cameras. It enhances image quality, ensures reliability in the toughest conditions, and empowers adventurers to capture and share their exhilarating experiences with the world.
