Paper Abstract

A critical factor in close-range photogrammetry is the availability of appropriate camera systems. Currently available photogrammetric cameras (single cameras and stereometric cameras), although extremely well suited for numerous applications, do not meet the wide variety of requirements of applications (and potential applications) in an increasing number of engineering and scientific fields. Results of experimental research conducted in centers throughout the world indicate that, through the use of appropriate procedures and techniques, one can achieve with non-metric cameras essentially the same order of accuracy obtained with close-range photogrammetric cameras. As a result, non-metric cameras are starting to gain acceptance as data acquisition tools in numerous engineering and scientific application of photogrammetry. This paper gives an overview of the photogrammetric potentials of non-metric cameras, discusses the results achieved with small-format (70mm and 35mm) camera systems in a number of projects, and refers to the data-reduction procedures and techniques used. The impact of opening the door for the use of non-metric cameras in photogrammetric work is discussed.
