Current one-shot, handheld Digital Still Cameras (DSCs) generally offer different file formats to save the captured frames: Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), RAW and/or Tag(ged) Image File Format (TIFF). Although the JPEG file format is the most commonly used file format worldwide, it is incapable of storing all original data, something that also occurs, to a certain extent, for large TIFF files. Therefore, most professional photographers prefer shooting RAW files, often described as the… 
Impact of image quality on SfM photogrammetry : colour, compression and noise
Structure-from-motion (SfM) photogrammetry has become ubiquitous in the geosciences, owing to its low-cost and ease of use for generating 3D data. Ideas around data collection, quality and processing
Spectral Characterization of a Digital Still Camera's NIR Modification to Enhance Archaeological Observation
TLDR
To overcome the constraints of detecting and interpreting only the varying visible colors in vegetation (the so-called crop marks), while still maintaining the flexible and low-cost approach characteristic for aerial archaeology, a consumer digital still camera was modified to capture NIR radiation.
3D en kit: des solutions pour la tracéologie et au-delà
3D recording and viewing are about to become a common function in consumer electronic equipment, while 3D modeling is still seldom used in archaeological research, even in sectors where it could
MULTISPECTRAL IMAGE CAPTURING WITH FOVEON SENSORS
TLDR
A specific image quality problem using an UAV and the commercially available multispectral camera Tetracam ADC Lite is described and the current state of a sensor development is presented, which is composed of two compact cameras with Foveon sensors.
Digital canopy photography: Exposed and in the raw
a b s t r a c t Estimates of the canopy gap fraction, on which calculations of leaf area index (LAI) are based, are sensi- tive to photographic exposure in upward-facing images. In this article we
High Dynamic Range Imaging for Archaeological Recording
TLDR
It is concluded that HDR imaging could serve an effective role in archaeological photographic recording, although there remain problems of archiving and distributing HDR radiance map data.
ESTIMATION OF THE SPECTRAL SENSITIVITY FUNCTIONS OF UN-MODIFIED AND MODIFIED COMMERCIAL OFF-THE-SHELF DIGITAL CAMERAS TO ENABLE THEIR USE AS A MULTISPECTRAL IMAGING SYSTEM FOR UAVS
TLDR
It was found that different un-modified camera models present very different RSR in some channels, and one of the modified cameras showed a response that was unexpected, highlighting the need to determine the RSR of a camera before using it for any quantitative studies.
Correction for light scattering combined with sub-pixel classification improves estimation of gap fraction from digital cover photography
Abstract Digital cover photography (DCP) has emerged as an indirect method to measure gap fraction of vegetation canopies. However, as with other photographic methods, determining camera relative
Aspects of dem Generation from Uas Imagery
Since a few years, micro UAS (unmanned aerial systems) with vertical take off and landing capabilities like quadro- or octocopter are used as sensor platform for Aerophotogrammetry. Since the
Near-Infrared Aerial Crop Mark Archaeology: From its Historical Use to Current Digital Implementations
TLDR
This article wants to delve deeper into the subject, looking at the conventional film-based approach of NIR aerial reconnaissance and its historical use in archaeological crop mark research, after which a current straightforward digital approach will be outlined.

Imaging the invisible using modified digital still cameras for straightforward and low-cost archaeological near-infrared photography
TLDR
Comparing the earlier film-based approach with the digital way of NIR shooting is compared, showing how the latter can greatly benefit from modified compact, hybrid and small-format Single Lens Reflex (SLR) DSCs.
Spectral Characterization of a Digital Still Camera's NIR Modification to Enhance Archaeological Observation

To overcome the constraints of detecting and interpreting only the varying visible colors in vegetation (the so-called crop marks), while still maintaining the flexible and low-cost approach characteristic for aerial archaeology, a consumer digital still camera was modified to capture NIR radiation.
The JPEG still picture compression standard
TLDR
The Baseline method has been by far the most widely implemented JPEG method to date, and is sufficient in its own right for a large number of applications.
Adaptive demosaicking
TLDR
This work proposes an adaptive demosaicking technique in the framework of bilateral filtering that provides a means to denoise, sharpen, and demosaic the image simultaneously and is run on synthetic images and real-world images for comparative purposes.

TLDR
A new primary-consistent soft-decision framework (PCSD) of color demosaicking is proposed that can significantly improve the image quality of digital cameras in both subjective and objective measures.
Effective use of spatial and spectral correlations for color filter array demosaicking
TLDR
This paper proposes effective schemes to enhance two existing state-of-the-art demosaicking methods and shows that the enhanced methods achieve notable improvements over the existing methods, in terms of both subjective and objective evaluations.
Adaptive Filtering for Color Filter Array Demosaicking
TLDR
Frequency analysis of CFA samples indicates that filtering a CFA image can better preserve high frequencies than filtering each color component separately, and an efficient filter for estimating the luminance at green pixels of the C FA image is designed and an adaptive filtering approach to estimating the Luminance at red and blue pixels is devised.
Demosaicing using optimal recovery
TLDR
A nonlinear interpolation scheme based on edge information that produces high-quality visual results is introduced, especially good at reconstructing the image around edges, a place where the visual human system is most sensitive.
How Digital Photography Works
Remember when digital cameras first came on the market a few years ago? Like most people, you probably waited to buy one, waiting to see if it was just a fad or if it was going to become a way of
