Paper Abstract

The effects of cosmetic defects such as scratches and digs as well as surface cleanliness are seen as increased veiling glare. Veiling glare lowers the contrast transfer function of camera objectives. Simplifying assumptions allow this effect to be estimated. Experimental data indicate that surface quality standards required for cosmetic reasons are higher than might be imposed for the purpose of maintaining image quality.
