Compact Camera Module (CCM) is widely used in PDAs, Cellular phones and PC web cameras. Nowadays CCM image quality level should match with photo-quality in that frame, optics plays an important role. Among the whole set of optical parameters, flare is particularly threatening as it can waste the world-best-design associated to the world-best-manufacturing-process optics resulting to a simple piece of plastic without any value. Because it acts at the border between optical designer and mechanical designer fields, it is a challenging parameter to study. In this paper, after defining Flare parameter, we show a powerful method for tracking Flare among a complete CCM, through the use of the sensor's emitted intensity diagram. Following this procedure will prevent from random time consuming calculations on flare topic.
