Recently, the number of pixels for consumer digital still camera are amazingly increasing by modern semiconductor and digital technology. The biggest pixels as a consumer digital camera were 0.8 millions at the 1996, and transmission techniques of image to PC had been received attention. Only 4 years later, in the 2000, there are 25 kinds of consumer pixel cameras on the market which have more than 3 million pixels in Japan. The functionary for transmission of image of PC is standardized, and the price is less than 1000 US dollars. IN these circumstances, it is expected that 3 million consumer digital still cameras will become useful tool in various real-time imaging fields, e.g. industry, machine and robot vision, archeology, architecture, construction management, and so on. With this objective, performance evaluation of 3 million consumer pixel cameras for digital photogrammetry were investigated in this paper.
