Selecting a Lens — The Easy Way to Make the Right Choice
A camera without the right lens will never work to its full capabilities. While this might seem like an academic matter, in practice finding the right lens can be as tough as choosing the camera model in the first place. Which lens type fits your application?

This current Basler White Paper from our "Image Processing for Beginners" series describes how to navigate the inescapable compromise between aperture number, image size, magnification and of course costs to find the right balance of performance and economy for your application.
