Fig. 1: (a): Radar range image. (b): Lambertian surface with surface reflectance of 16 Macbeth patches, simultaneously illuminated by three illuminants. (c): White Lambertian sphere in same lighting. Symbols r,g,b mark location of maxima in R, G, and B channels.

Fig. 2: (a): Three illuminants. Equi-energy white light is also shown. (b): Camera sensitivities. (c): Sharpened camera sensitivities.

Fig. 3: (a): Pixels self-shadowed from at least one light. (b): Pixels with solutions for ratios $\mbox{\boldmath$\space e\:$ }'$.

Fig. 4: (a): Recovered normals, shaded from (0,0,1). (b): Ground truth normal vectors, also shaded from (0,0,1).

Fig. 5: (a): Recovered surface with recovered color as seen under white light. (b): Ground truth surface and colors under white light.

Fig. 6: Ellipsoid in e1,e2,e3 space associated with a particular RGB point, with four solutions for normal vector equal to a given vector divided by the ellipsoid coordinates.
