Diploma thesis - Helke Gabele - Febuary 2002
The thesis presents a method for the usage of digital cameras as luminance meters, independent from the exposure. A calibration of the camera is performed with the help of an OECF measurement and the luminance is calculated with the camera’s digital RGB output values. Error sources, which can limit the accuracy of measurement, are demonstrated. Finally, the application is explained on the example of accident examination.
