Relative motion between a camera and its subject introduces motion blur in captured images. Reconstruction of unblurred images is ill-posed due to the loss of spatial high frequencies. The flutter shutter preserves high frequencies by rapidly opening and closing the shutter during exposure, providing greatly improved reconstruction. We address two open problems in the reconstruction of unblurred images from flutter shutter images. Firstly, we propose a noise reduction technique that reduces reconstruction noise while preserving image detail. Secondly, we propose a semi-automatic technique for estimating the Point Spread Function of the motion blur. Together these techniques provide substantial improvement in reconstruction of flutter shutter images.
