Sample Images

This represents the full image size and ratio achieved using a 1/3" Aptina MT9V024 at a distance of approximately 30mm. 



In this sample image, the sensor used was a 1/3" Aptina MT9V024. The coin was at a distance of approx. 23mm.


In this sample image, the penny (d=20.3mm) was at a distance of 3cm from the lens.
This is a telecentric lens which minimises distortion by reducing the field of view. Although not a designated macro lens, the lens also focuses very close to the subject.


In these sample images, the sensor used was a 1/4" Sony ICX618. The first image is focused at a distance of 30mm from the lens and the second at 32mm. This lens has a very small F Number of F1.8 creating a narrow depth of field.
