Abstract:

Pinholes used in place of glass lenses in combination with modern high grain low noise level TV camera tubes may solve some television visual display problems. Both increased depth of field and field of view are logically anticipated results. The high f-number of a pinhole might be compensated for by the high signal gain of currently available TV camera tubes. Analytical results indicate that a 100 degrees wide included field of view can be attained with moderate lighting levels and available hardware. It is recommended that a TV pinhole camera system be constructed of stated design requirements for further testing and evaluation.
