Abstract

A carefully controlled experiment was conducted to compare the modulation transfer function measurements, for a high performance photographic system, obtained with an automated edge gradient analysis technique and with a semimanual sine wave analysis procedure. These results and other experimentation have determined that image evaluation techniques can be reliably applied to determine modulation transfer functions of optical and photographic systems out to 200 cycles/mm.
