We present a novel image-based BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function) measurement system for materials that have isotropic reflectance properties. Our proposed system is fast due to simple set up and automated operations. It also provides a wide angular coverage and noise reduction capability so that it achieves accuracy that is needed for computer graphics applications. We test the uniformity and constancy of the light source and the reciprocity of the measurement system. We perform a photometric calibration of HDR (High Dynamic Range) camera to recover an accurate radiance map from each HDR image. We verify our proposed system by comparing it with a previous imagebased BRDF measurement system. We demonstrate the efficiency and accuracy of our proposed system by generating photorealistic images of the measured BRDF data that include glossy blue, green plastics, gold coated metal and gold metallic paints.
