Pinhole Solutions

Standard pinhole lenses suffer from two main problems. Firstly the pinhole aperture of the lens is manufactured into the front and this needs to be positioned right into the pinhole with an unobscured view, making the presence of the camera easy to detect by the target. Secondly, the alignment of the lens to the pinhole is critical and any slight misalignment causes vignetting.

Claresys’ Flexible Alignment (FA) pinhole lenses use novel patented optical technology developed by DSTL to overcome both of these problems and provide good quality images through a 1mm pinhole, or less.
