camera calibration

Dear All,

When I try to calibrate microsoft lifecam using the tutorials in the below link :

http://wiki.ros.org/camera_calibration/Tutorials/MonocularCalibration

I got the values. However if I need to convert to ros understandable yaml file, I need to fill in the distortion model and the camera model. I saw an example for prosilica but do not know what to fill in for the lifecam.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Best Regards Praveen

I'm not sure I understand your problem (because you can find the link also on http://wiki.ros.org/camera_calibration/Tutorials/MonocularCalibration), but I'm thinking you need this: http://wiki.ros.org/camera_calibration_parsers

example for a .ini file (kinect camera):

Hi,

Thanks for your answer. The question was based on the second link.

I copied the output and saved it as .ini file as suggested. When I try to :

rosrun camera_calibration_parsers convert calibration.ini calibration.yml

It throws me: I am not sure what does it mean by camera model. Is something missing ?

Thanks a lot for your feedback: On comparing the initial few lines consisting of D,K,R an P should not be present. If it starts with ost version its correct.
