What's VC?
Making telephoto and low light a new medium. VC (Vibration Compensation)


The actuator and algorithms, developed in-house at Tamron, provide the power that gives VC (Vibration Compensation) it's excellent tracking performance and smooth, stable viewfinder image.

Tamron's VC mechanism employs a three-coil system, whereby the three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens groups electromagnetically via three steel balls.

The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the steel balls,achieving smooth movement with little friction, helping to eliminate the blur from camera shake for clean shots at night or indoors, or in macro and telephoto photography situations. Hand-held was never this easy.

VC is an abbreviation of Vibration Compensation, and is also available in the18-270mm (B003), 28-300mm (A20) and the 17-50mm (B005) models.
