Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Smith designed the camera lenses for the Mars Exploration Rovers, discussed in the final chapter, but his emphasis here is on the concepts and techniques relating to lens types, which he traces to the 19th century, and their relevance in the digital age. He offers advice on selecting a standard camera type and lenses before moving on to optics used in astrocameras (a hybrid telescope-camera), computer machine vision, wide-screen movies, and other special purposes. Other features include a timeline of major advances in optics, and optical prescriptions.
