In photogrammetry applications, camera parameters must be as accurate as possible to avoid deviations in measurements from images. Errors increase if wide angle lens cameras are used. Moreover, the coupling between intrinsic and extrinsic camera parameters and the lens distortion model influences the result of the calibration process notably. This paper proposes a method for calibrating wide angle lens cameras, which takes into account the existing hard coupling. The proposed method obtains stable results, which do not depend on how the image lens distortion is corrected.
