A compound microscope is used to enlarge small objects. A convex objective lens forms an enlarged image that is further enlarged by an eyepiece lens.
Some newer cameras use a lens to form an image on a light-sensitive sensor, and some oldder cameras form an image on light sensitive film.
In this lesson, you will use a combination of your textbook and Internet web sites to learn more about these technological devices.
