A near-instant method for acquiring facial geometry, diffuse color, specular intensity, specular exponent, and surface orientation. Six flashes are fired in rapid succession with subsets of 24 DSLR cameras, which are arranged to produce an even distribution of specular highlights. Total capture time is below the 67ms blink reflex.
