In this article, a camera response formation model is proposed to accurately predict the responses of images captured under various exposure settings. Differing from earlier works that estimated the camera relative spectral sensitivity, our model constructs the physical spectral sensitivity curves and device-dependent parameters that convert the absolute spectral radiances of target surfaces to the camera readout responses. With this model the camera responses to miscellaneous combinations of surfaces and illuminants could be accurately predicted, thus creating an “imaging simulator”, by using which the colorimetric and photometric research based on the cameras would be much of convenience.
