Recently, the number of pixels for consumer digital still camera are amazingly increasing by development of modern semiconductor and digital technology. The biggest pixel as a consumer digital camera was 0.8 millions at the August 1996, and transmission techniques of image to PC had been received attention. Only 4 years later, at the end of October 2000, there are 25 kinds of consumer pixel cameras on the market which have more than 3 million pixels in Japan. The functionary for transmission of image to PC is standardized, and the price is less than 1000 US$.
In these circumstances, it is expected that 3 million consumer digital still cameras will become useful tool in various digital photogrammetric fields, e.g. industry, machine and robot vision, archeology, architecture, construction management, and so on. With this motive, performance evaluation of 3 million consumer pixel cameras for digital photogrammetry are investigated in this paper.
