Definitions for "Distortion"
The act of distorting, or twisting out of natural or regular shape; a twisting or writhing motion; as, the distortions of the face or body.
The state of being distorted, or twisted out of shape or out of true position; crookedness; perversion.
An unnatural deviation of shape or position of any part of the body producing visible deformity.
Aberration in optical lenses. If the magnification of an optical system changes by the radius, objects near the axis are displayed in a different measure than objects distant to the axis. Example: quadrate. If the enlargement increases towards the edges of the image area, the corners of the quadrate will be more enlarged than the straight lines. The result looks like a cushion and is therefore called cushion-shaped aberration. In the contrary case one speaks of a barrel-shaped aberration.
Misrepresentation of an image. Wide angle lenses normally produce more distortion than tele lenses.
Variations in magnification from the center to the edge of an image, making straight lines seem to curve. Barrel, or negative, distortion causes a square grid to appear barrel-shaped; pincushion, or positive, distortion increases in proportion to the distance from the center of the image.
