Abstract—Blurring is one of the representative image degradation, and much research has been done on its restoration -. In these studies, the degradation process of the image is modeled by a point spread function (PSF: Point Spread Function) of blurring, and it is possible to recover from one input image by estimating its PSF. However, when noise is mixed into the image due to factors such as the characteristics of the camera, there is still a failure of the image due to PSF estimation error. In this paper, we introduce a ringing removal method using L0 regularization. We propose a high-performance restoration method that can estimate clear images, and confirm its effectiveness by experiments.
