wow! this is pretty great. you guys rock :)
basically all this lens+camera "defect" modelling is also very useful in
the geomatics/remote-sensing area. (of course also in computer vision,
medical imageing, etc.)
i had a quick look @ http://lensfun.berlios.de/manual/elem_calibration.html
and also read in the ML archive the high-quality disscussion you guys
had. (lot's of useful info there!)

mmh, maybe an new mailing list, dedicated to photogammetry?
basically we share the very same problem, but our practical realisations
of a camera/sensor are quite broad. e.g. a DSLR camera has a tiny
CCD-sensor on it's back-plane, while a professional aerial camera has a
back-plane of 350mmx350mm, etc..
e.g. on the geomatics/remote-sensing side OSSIM ( http://www.ossim.org ),
also already has support/code for lens correction for modern aerial cameras
(but basically that's the same. lens-correction is useful for all
cameras/sensors with lenses :)
GRASS GIS ( http://grass.itc.it/ ) on the other hand does not even have
lens-correction support at all it appears. ( yesterday night i was wading
throu the code, i couldn't spot any. feel free to correct me.

great. so with ufraw-batch it will be possible pre-process aerial photos
(which were shot with a DSLR camera) to rectilinear, and when further process
them in GRASS. looks good.
