Abstract

Estimation of camera response function (CRF) has become important in the field of computer graphics and radiance measurement to achieve accurate modeling and high dynamic range imaging. A method is proposed to provide accurate radiance for direct measurement of the CRF in this paper by using a polariscope. The experimental results indicate that the accuracy of the estimated CRF obtained by the new approach is about 5% better than that of the previous method.
