Thread: Liquid Camera Lenses

  1. #1

    Default Liquid Camera Lenses

    I'm not really sure if this fits in here, so sorry if it's in the wrong forum.

    This article is about future camera lenses that will be made using liquid. I'm not really sure how it works, but I gather from the article that the focus is adjusted using high-frequency sound, and the focus speed is around 4ms.

    Maybe our lenses will be replaced by these next time...

    OLED screens, fuel cell batteries - these cutting edge technologies have been discussed alongside liquid lenses for quite a while now, but nothing concrete has been demonstrated so far.

    This is probably geared more towards microlenses rather than a replacement for full-sized glass optics, simply because it'd be very difficult to have non-solid lens elements of comparable quality at macroscopic diameters.
    A possible application would probably be CCD/CMOS microlenses, where incident light can be selectively and variably refocused onto each photosite to compensate for optical distortions at the extremes (edge sharpness, abberations - to a certain extent?)
