    • 2013 July-August, Fenella Saunders, “Tiny Lenses See the Big Picture”, American Scientist: 
      The single-imaging optic of the mammalian eye offers some distinct visual advantages. Such lenses can take in photons from a wide range of angles, increasing light sensitivity. They also have high spatial resolution, resolving incoming images in minute detail. It’s therefore not surprising that most cameras mimic this arrangement.
  5. (in the plural) Preparations for some undertaking.
  6. An agreement.
