This paper discusses aspects of the solution of the image-stabilization problem, using pictures taken by a movable camera to improve the operator’s perception of the images of a scene when the size of the scene exceeds the size of the visualization region. Methods are proposed of increasing the selection quality of pairs of points for estimating the parameters of the actual and planned movement of the image of the scene. An approach to the implementation of the algorithm in real time is discussed.
