Abstract

It has been shown many times that using different versions of a scene perturbed with different blurs improved the quality of a restored image compared with using a single blurred image. We focus on large defocus blurs, and we first consider a case in which two different blurring kernels are used. We analyze with numerical simulations the influence of the relative diameter of both kernels on the quality of restoration. We then quantitatively evaluate how the two-kernel approach improves the robustness of restoration to a difference between the kernels used in designing the algorithm and the actual kernels that have perturbed the image. We finally show that using three different kernels may not improve the restoration performance compared with the two-kernel approach but still improves the robustness to kernel estimation.
