Camera Only radiometric correction

Hello,
I am using a Parrot Sequoia sensor.
When using the “Camera Only” radiometric correction option, is it equivalent to convert DN into radiance ?
I checked many posts and questions in the “active community” section but couldn’t find details about precise parameters corrected using this option.

Best regards
Jerome Theau

Jerome,

Camera only correction does not need the light sensor data and accounts for the camera properties. You can find the tags that are needed here: https://support.pix4d.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001846106-Exif-Xmp-tags-for-radiometric-correction. It is still reflectance when you are using radiometric targets.
