In recent years several techniques of full-field measurement have been studied by digital image correlation method, moiré interference method and holographic interferometry method and so on. Image based method can be easily applied to large deformation problem and moving specimen at slow speed. Because digital camera capabilities, which are high resolution, low noise and faster data transfer speed, have been improved, very small strain measurement can be achieved by those improvements. The improvement will widen those applications, for example, moving object at high speed and less 0.1% strain measurement which is almost the same accuracy with a precise strain gauge. In order to apply the advanced application, noise reduction for a digital image and lens distortion correction for an optical system should be developed. In this paper we propose noise reduction technique using statistical camera model to be applied to any kinds of digital cameras.
