The digital cameras have been effected from systematical errors which decreased metric quality of image. The digital cameras have been effected from systematical errors that decreases metric quality of image. The aim of this chapter is to explore usability of fuzzy logic on calibration of digital cameras. Therefore, a 145‐pointed planar test field has been prepared in the laboratories of Department of Geodesy and Photogrammetric Engineering at the Gebze Technical University. The test field has been imaged from five points of view with the digital camera Nikon Coolpix‐E8700 within maximum (71.2 mm) and minimum (8.9 mm) focal length. The input-output data have been determined from 10 calibration images obtained for fuzzy logic process. These data have also been used and formed for the space resection process. Adaptive neuro‐fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) functions have been used for fuzzy process at MATLAB 7.0, and the results of these two distinct methods have been compared. Finally, the most convenient (least squares average error) or the most useful ANFIS “Trimf, trapmf, gbellmf, gaussmf, gauss2mf, pimf, dsigmf and psigmf” functions are determined and compared for space resection method for the conventional bundle adjustment process.

Nowadays, mobile phones are more than a device that can only satisfy the communication need between people. Since fisheye lenses integrated with mobile phones are lightweight and easy to use, they are advantageous. In addition to this advantage, it is experimented whether fisheye lens and mobile phone combination can be used in a photogrammetric way, and if so, what will be the result. Fisheye lens equipment used with mobile phones was tested in this study. For this, standard calibration of ‘Olloclip 3 in one’ fisheye lens used with iPhone 4S mobile phone and ‘Nikon FC‐E9’ fisheye lens used with Nikon Coolpix8700 are compared based on equidistant model. This experimental study shows that Olloclip 3 in one fisheye lens developed for mobile phones has at least the similar characteristics with classic fisheye lenses. The dimensions of fisheye lenses used with smart phones are getting smaller and the prices are reducing. Moreover, as verified in this study, the accuracy of fisheye lenses used in smartphones is better than conventional fisheye lenses. The use of smartphones with fisheye lenses will give the possibility of practical applications to ordinary users in the near future.
