This paper presents a solution to panoramic image stitching of two images with coinciding optical centers, but unknown focal length and radial distortion. The algorithm operates with a minimal set of corresponding points (three) which means that it is well suited for use in any RANSAC style algorithm for simultaneous estimation of geometry and outlier rejection. Compared to a previous method for this problem, we are able to guarantee that the right solution is found in all cases. The solution is obtained by solving a small system of polynomial equations. The proposed algorithm has been integrated in a complete multi image stitching system and we evaluate its performance on real images with lens distortion. We demonstrate both quantitative and qualitative improvements compared to state of the art methods.
