Sample Images

Sensor: 1/3" Aptina MT9V024.

In the below image, the sugar cube is 34mm from the lens. This is the minimum distance at which the entire cube remains in focus.

The sugar cube measures 16mm x 14mm.


The coin was at a distance of approx. 21mm.


In this sample image, the penny (d=20.3mm) was at a distance of 20cm from the lens.
This lens has a short focal length enabling a large field of view. This does produce some distortion towards the edges of the image but the penny remains sharp.


In these sample images, the sensor used was a 1/4" Sony ICX618. The first image is focused at a distance of 10mm from the lens and the second at 24mm. This lens has a very small F Number of F1.7 creating a narrow depth of field.
