Abstract:

The report is not the result of a focused study but an accumulation of issues encountered during a variety of projects requiring the use of polarized light, addressing color-consistency problems experienced using commercial, single-sensor digital cameras with linearly polarized illuminants. Using an unfixed polarizing film sheet contrasts to using a commercial polarimeter. Experiences with on-camera processing, white balance, color space, file format, tethered operation, and the use of PC processing software are discussed.
