Paper Abstract

Pictures have been taken with several miniature cameras, the smallest of which is 1/8" x 1/8" wide and .030 " thick, the thickness dimension being aligned to the object being photographed. When cut to size, most available films and thin filters can be used. However, the object or surface being photographed must be within zero to .005" of the camera sensing face to produce pictures of .001" resolution. Thus, the camera may have endoscopic applications in medical diagnostic and industrial evaulation. The author has a patent pending on the camera.
