    Does anyone know where I could purchase a standalone aperture (electronic
    iris) mechanism ? - i.e. the type with a tiny servo attached.
    Thanks, -Pete.

    I've not seen them with a variable iris, only an open/close shutter, but

    or

    would be worth asking. Professional optics components tend to be expensive.


    You might find a cheap lens that has the right control for use on CCTV
    cameras, in which case I suspect taking the lens apart and removing the
    glass might be a cheap alternative.


    An ex-collegue of mine developed a variable shutter/iris as part of his
    PhD. For the application, there was no commerical alternative - money
    was no object, but he had some rather exacting requirements.

    His PhD thesis is online
