Resolution requirment

what resolution would be enough on a digital camera to get .09 mill detail in a close up shot about 5 inch away from the camera?

RE: Resolution requirment

Do the math



RE: Resolution requirment

Does it not depend on the field of view (lensing) and the chip (or pixel) size?

RE: Resolution requirment

Given the resolution requirement, you can figure out how big an FOV you have with a given imaging chip


RE: Resolution requirment

field of view will be 2"x1.5" ccd size 1/1.7" how many pixels will a line thats .05 mill take ?
thank you.

RE: Resolution requirment

If you already know the field and the CCD, just divide the field by the number of pixels
