"Best" Calibration Parameters?
« on: November 03, 2011, 03:00:25 AM »
I am not an expert in photogrammetry, although when doing research a few years back I was told that if possible when loading calibrations it is best to have AT LEAST k1, k2, and k3 and beyond that solving and loading more variables into software that is just going to re-solve the cameras interior parameters could create more problems. Can someone explain what the most optimal calibration solution is or what the advantages and disadvantages are for solving for different variables?

This software only has the ability to solve for:

k1, k2
k1, k1, k3
k1, k2, p1, p2
k1, k2, k3, p1, p2

Please only refer to these variable options and if you can point me to any literature that would be helpful as well.
