Abstract
A new method of evaluating the colorimetric accuracy of a color camera is proposed that is based on the size (appropriately normalized) of the metamer mismatch volume induced by a change of 'observer' from camera to human eye and vice-versa. The degree of metamer mismatching indicates the range in the discrepancy of the colour signals that can arise and as such is a more well-founded measure of colorimetric accuracy than traditional spectral-based measures such as the root mean squared difference in fit between the camera and eye's sensitivity functions.
