The purpose of this experiment was to demonstrate the principles of the simplest of cameras and to show the fundamental issues with cameras such as distortion, resolution, and magnification. In the report the equations for magnification, mag=Pin-hole to screen distance/Pin-hole to object distance, and focal length, D=.047 f . These equations figure out the multiplication of the size of the image and the ideal distance to focus the camera respectively. Thus at the ideal focal length, the camera will have the highest resolution and a magnification of 1. Methods: First off, the camera was made by taking two cardboard tubes in which one fits inside of the other. On the smaller tube, tape wax paper smoothly over an end, on the larger tube, place foil over an end and use a tack to poke a hole through it in the center of the opening. Then place the smaller tube inside of the larger tube and place the camera on the table and tape it down in front of the light source with the object in between. In the first section of the lab, magnification is tested by using a set pin-hole to
