Steinheil was a German optical company. It made camera lenses from the XIXth century until at least the 1970s.

In 1866 it invented the Aplanat lens.

Steinheil made a few cameras at various times, and during the late 1940s, it developed an advanced 35mm camera with interchangeable lenses, the Casca.
