|German term or phrase: Blendenautomatik|
|CCTV installation guide again...|
I included this as an add-on to another question, but wanted to ask specifically about this term.
The context is:
"Bei Überbelichtung oder Objektiven mit Blendenautomatik: Verringern Sie die Beleuchtungsstärke oder halten Sie einen neutralen Graufilter vor das Objektiv."
Endre Both suggested "shutter priority" or "time priority"; is this correct?
I found this term, with the specific context of video, in Richter, FWB Optik, Foto, Video. A quick Google search confirms: a huge number of hits, specifically within the context of security cameras and CCTV.
3 examples follow:
Auto-Iris Lenses are designed for outdoor use or any applications with variable lighting conditions. They are available in C or CS Mounts from super-wide angle to telephoto (depending on the application use), DC and Video types. The DC type is more economical and designed for the newer CCD cameras which incorporate ALC circuitry of the camera.

And to answer your question, yes, Endre's suggestion of "shutter-priority" would be correct, it's a term used primarily with high-end still cameras (SLR). But for your particular context, "auto iris" seems to be the terminus technicus you want.

|Perfect! I had seen this term in English but was not at all sure it was the translation of the German. Thanks also to others for good suggestions|
