This paper describes a method for measuring the intrinsic parameters of a camera. If aspect ratio is already known, the method requires two images of a plane; if aspect ratio is not known, the method requires three images of the plane. (Equivalently, one image of n planes could be used instead of n images of one plane). The plane must be marked with four points in known configuration.
