Jim Chandler is willing to test and calibrate other digital cameras by acquiring 8 frames of a simple testfield at Loughborough University and a simple methodology that has been developed and published in the Photogrammetric Record. It is hoped that by testing and calibrating your camera that this freely available repository can be extended. Please contact Jim Chandler for further details.
