BACKGROUND

Description of Related Art

As camera modules being widely utilized, the applications of the camera modules for various intelligent electronics, car devices, recognition devices, entertainment devices, sports devices and smart home systems have become a development trend in the technology. Meanwhile, in order to enrich users' experiences, smart devices with one, two or even more than three lens assemblies are becoming the mainstream in the market and thus lens assemblies with different features to meet requirements in different applications are continuously in development.


Currently available compact lens assemblies for the electronic products often have features like wide view angle and short object distance. However, the optical designs of such lens assemblies failed to meet the consumers' various demands in photo shooting. Conventional optical systems usually use multi-piece structure with spherical glass lenses, which results in having an overly large size of the lens assemblies. Meanwhile, costs of such lens assemblies are also too high to be applied in various devices and products. Therefore, the conventional optical systems have failed to meet the current trend of the technology development.

A middle stop disposed between the first lens element and the image surface is favorable for enlarging the field of view of the optical imaging system, thereby providing the optical imaging system with the advantage of a wide-angle lens.


According to the optical imaging system of the present disclosure, when the lens element has a convex surface and the region of convex shape is not defined, it indicates that the surface can be convex in the paraxial region thereof. When the lens element has a concave surface and the region of concave shape is not defined, it indicates that the surface can be concave in the paraxial region thereof. Likewise, when the region of refractive power or focal length of a lens element is not defined, it indicates that the region of refractive power or focal length of the lens element can be in the paraxial region thereof.


According to the optical imaging system of the present disclosure, the image surface of the optical imaging system, based on the corresponding image sensor, can be a plane or a curved surface with an arbitrary curvature, especially a curved surface being concave facing towards the object side.


The optical imaging system of the present disclosure can be optionally applied to moving focus optical systems. According to the optical imaging system of the present disclosure, the optical imaging system features a good correction capability and high image quality, and can be applied to 3D (three-dimensional) image capturing applications and electronic devices, such as digital cameras, mobile devices, smartphones, digital tablets, smart TVs, network surveillance devices, motion sensing game consoles, driving recording systems, rear view camera systems, drone cameras and wearable devices.


According to the present disclosure, an imaging apparatus includes the aforementioned optical imaging system and an image sensor, wherein the image sensor is disposed on or near an image surface of the optical imaging system. Therefore, the design of the optical imaging system enables the imaging apparatus to achieve the best image quality. Preferably, the optical imaging system can further include a barrel member, a holder member or a combination thereof.
