Pinhole camera modelling
- Florent PIN
Applet designed to be displayed on a 10" or more screen. A pinhole camera is a device which creates an image on a surface through a small diameter circular aperture without any optical element. This pinhole camera modelling allows to customize all the device parameters dynamically:
- Pinhole diameter
- Pinhole-sensor distance, improperly called focal length
- Subject distance
- Sensor size
A simplified formula is usually used to determine the best pinhole diameter for a given focal length: Will you find under which contitions this formula is true ?
