About Magnification of Taking Lens About Magnification of Taking LensPDFファイル (639KB)

  • In the machine vision field, optical magnification is important to select taking lens or to consider optical system.
    However, it is not well known and sometimes confused that magnification has a meaning other than imaging magnification, generally known, which indicates size ratio of object and image.
    We would like to explain, here, a concept and applications of magnification clearly. (Update: October 24th 2018)
