Abstract/Summary Previous catadioptric systems with a single reflective surface have either a constant elevational gain, producing the desirable linear mapping between elevation angle and camera angle [1], or a single viewpoint [2]. We present a novel combination of reflective and refractive surfaces that offers both properties. The derivation of the surfaces leads to a second order differential equation that can be solved numerically. A prototype made from acrylic glass is presented.
