I would like to build a raspberry pi based microscope to analyse red blood cells for detection of malaria. What kind of external lenses can I use? is there any review on different type of lenses used with Raspberry pi cameras (v1 and v2, not HQ)?
Some of the lenses I consider for these are extracted from laser pointers, DVD drives, ball lenses and single aspherical lenses.
Please let me know your recommendations.
I read a few research papers and I think the following paper captured most of the designs, but didn’t discuss on the lenses.
