Paper Abstract Numerous single image blind deblurring algorithms have been proposed to restore latent sharp images under camera motion. However, these algorithms are mainly evaluated using either synthetic datasets or few selected real blurred images. It is thus unclear how these algorithms would perform on images acquired "in the wild" and how we could gauge the progress in the field. In this paper, we aim to bridge this gap. We present the first comprehensive perceptual study and analysis of single image blind deblurring using real-world blurred images. First, we collect a dataset of real blurred images and a dataset of synthetically blurred images. Using these datasets, we conduct a large-scale user study to quantify the performance of several representative state-of-the-art blind deblurring algorithms. Second, we systematically analyze subject preferences, including the level of agreement, significance tests of score differences, and rationales for preferring one method over another. Third, we study the correlation between human subjective scores and several full-reference and noreference image quality metrics. Our evaluation and analysis indicate the performance gap between synthetically blurred images and real blurred image and sheds light on future research in single image blind deblurring.
