Just noticeable defocus blur detection and estimation

Jianping Shi, Li Xu, Jiaya Jia
2015 2015 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)  
We tackle a fundamental yet challenging problem to detect and estimate just noticeable blur (JNB) caused by defocus that spans a small number of pixels in images.  ...  It directly establishes correspondence between sparse edge representation and blur strength estimation. Extensive experiments manifest the generality and robustness of this feature.  ...  Different from traditional camera motion blur estimation [5, 27, 9, 26, 18] where blur is significant and anisotropic, just noticeable blur mainly deals with slight defocus blur.  ...

Fast defocus map estimation

Ding-Jie Chen, Hwann-Tzong Chen, Long-Wen Chang
2016 2016 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP)  
The experimental results show that our method is efficient and able to estimate a plausible superpixel-level defocus map from a given single image.  ...  Since the pixel-level propagation step is timeconsuming, we develop an effective method to obtain the whole-image defocus blur using oversegmentation and transductive inference.  ...  The blur scale of each pixel is then selected by a constrained pairwise energy function. Shi et al. [15] estimate the small defocus blur via the statistics of sparse just noticeable blur features.  ...

Minimum change in spherical aberration that can be perceived

Silvestre Manzanera, Pablo Artal
2016 Biomedical Optics Express  
Using a flicker detection-based procedure implemented on an adaptive optics visual simulator, we measured the spherical aberration thresholds that produce just-noticeable differences in perceived image  ...  The thresholds were measured for positive and negative values of spherical aberration, for best focus and + 0.5 D and + 1.0 D of defocus.  ...  Even considering the intrinsic subjective nature of the requested task for the subject, the detection of flicker may be easier than the detection of just-noticeable differences in a continuously slowly  ...

The second experiment measures a viewer's ability to notice momentary defocus and shows that the threshold of blur detection in arc minutes decreases significantly as the duration of the blur increases  ...  We perform two psychophysics experiments to investigate a viewer's ability to detect defocus in video; in particular, the defocus that arises in video during motion in depth when the camera does not maintain  ...  We used a weighted 1-up/2-down method to estimate the detection threshold values.  ...

Equiblur zones at the fovea and near retinal periphery

Bin Wang, Kenneth J. Ciuffreda, Trevor Irish
2006 Vision Research  
Both the group mean blur detection and successive blur discrimination thresholds progressively increased with retinal eccentricity.  ...  Knowledge regarding successive blur discrimination thresholds (i.e., equiblur zones) in depth and across the near retinal periphery, and their relation to blur detection (i.e., depth-of-focus), remains  ...  In contrast, blur discrimination refers to the allowable range of retinal defocus before an already blurry target appears to be just noticeably blurrier.  ...
