COM-Nikkor 37mm F1.4

Computer Output Microfilm (COM) photography is defined by certain distinct conditions, such as the color, intensity, and contrast of the traced images.
These constitute the distinct performance limits of COM-Nikkor lenses.
The range of aberration correction is from 400 to 650 nanometers. The contrast between the traces and the screen background is maximized.
High resolution is attained by using a large, high-speed aperture, which also takes care of adequate exposure of the fairly high framing speed of moving traces on the CRT.
The COM-Nikkor 37mm F1.4 covers a field diameter of 15mm with standard magnification of 1/8X.
