Paper Abstract

Characteristics of wide angle (fish-eye) optical systems having fields of view greater than 100 degrees are discussed. Design problems such as pupil aberration and glass selection are discussed. A table of lens characteristics for lenses of 140 to 190 degree fields is presented comparing image heights, lens diameters, focal length, etc. It is demonstrated that such lenses generally obey an image height relationship of y = .015F0 (0 is in degrees)
