Fish-eye lenses are convenient in such applications where a very wide angle of view is needed, but their use for measurement purposes has been limited by the lack of an accurate, generic, and easy-to-use calibration procedure. We hence propose a generic camera model, which is suitable for fish-eye lens cameras as well as for conventional and wide-angle lens cameras, and a calibration method for estimating the parameters of the model. The achieved level of calibration accuracy is comparable to the previously reported state-of-the-art.
Camera model, camera calibration, lens distortion, fish-eye lens, wide-angle lens.
