In this paper we deal with the problem of digital camera identification by photographs. Identifying camera is possible by analyzing camera's sensor artifacts that occur during the process of photo processing. The problem of digital camera identification has been popular for a long time. Recently many effective and robust algorithms for solving this problem have been proposed. However, almost all solutions are based on state-of-the-art algorithm, proposed by Lukás et al. in 2006. Core of this

In this paper we consider tracing cameras by analyzing defects of their optical systems, like vignetting and lens distortion. We show that analysis of vignetting defect allows for recognizing brand of the camera. Lens distortion can be used to distinguish images from different cameras. Experimental evaluation was carried out on 60 devices (compact cameras and smartphones) for a total number of 12 051 images, with support of the Dresden Image Database. Proposed methods do not require denoising images with wavelet-based denoising filter what has a significant influence for speed of image processing, compared with state-of-the-art algorithm.
