We present a miniature camera lens design method that uses a freeform surface based on the pedal curve to the ellipse in polynomial form. Two designs are presented and their benefits of optical performance and tolerance sensitivity are compared to designs with conventional aspheric surfaces. We also reverse a freeform design using even aspherical surfaces to show that the optimization solution of a freeform design cannot be reproduced by even aspherical surfaces.
