We propose a simple technique for extracting camera motion parameters from a sequence of images. The method can estimate qualitatively camera pan, tilt, zoom, roll, and horizontal and vertical tracking. Unlike most other comparable techniques, the present method can distinguish pan from horizontal tracking, and tilt from vertical tracking. The technique can be applied to the automated indexing of video and film sequences.
