Increasing the Repeatability of Your Sharpness Tests

By Robert Sumner
With contributions from Ranga Burada, Henry Koren, Brienna Rogers and Norman Koren

Consistency is a fundamental aspect of successful image quality testing. Each component in your system may contribute to variation in test results. For tasks such as pass/fail testing, the primary goal is to identify the variation due to the component and ignore the variation due to noise. Being able to accurately replicate test results with variability limited to 1-5% will give you a more accurate description of how your product will perform. (more…)

Using Sharpness to Measure Your Autofocus Consistency

Autofocus plays a major role in many camera system applications with variable focus, including consumer electronic devices. Camera systems must be able to focus at a variety of distances. Optical systems on cameras only allow a certain range of distances from the camera to be in focus at once (this is often known as the depth of field, or depth of focus). (more…)
