Two instances of the same problem being turned into a new technique for vision could be seen within a few yards of each other at the Hanover Fair in April. The problem is the old one of specular reflections in curved shiny surfaces such as painted car bodies. Unless one takes great care to provide highly diffused lighting, there will inevitably be at least one area which reflects an image of the light source directly at the camera, leading to problems of oversaturation and “blooming”, which spoils the information in the surrounding areas too.
