Underwater test video:
HiMARC Fluid Lensing Testing - Underwater imaging setup, zenith pointing at 2.28 m depth and 0.94 m surface to target
Recorded at 1280 x 960, 100 fps, broad spectrum, compressed video feed on GoPro Hero 3
<-- RAW cropped frame showing multiple lensing events and under-sampled data
Post-processed preliminary result showing corrected geometry, dithering, transient rejection and artifacts from DWTs ->
THIS SHOULD EXCITE YOU! At least, I was excited...
Below are the RAW frames to show you the levels of distortion I was making. Also, we tried to move around the target (xy plane only) to try and make our lives even more difficult, but prevailed in resolving details on my resolution target. Notice the significant lensing events. You can actually make out some of the resolution target features by eye!
More to come soon from air to water testing and high definition results. Consider supporting this work by sprucing up your home with some of my prints...
