Abstract
In this report, we evaluate various cameras and no. of criteria such as Range, Noise, Linearity, Blooming. This has been done on nine cameras obtained from different groups of the VASC. The digitizer used was the matrox in the Calibrated Imaging Laboratory (CIL). Then we apply the noise criterion fully for seven cameras in the CIL and on all the digitizers in the CIL. The digitizers are a Martox digitizer, a RasterOps digitizer on a Sun workstation and a standard Apple digitizer on a Power Macintosh. All the experiments reported here were done on the CIL.

These are end-to-end evaluations based on acquired images of standardized targets, rather than attempts to measure theoretical parameters of the system.
