For some reason, I had missed a basic step when creating my algorithm for 3D reconstruction from photos. The step, which I have been careful to consider in all similar previous projects, enforces an epipolar constraint and thereby "fixes" the problem of image noise.
The reconstruction done without enforcing this constraint is quite lousy, to say the least. Instead of searching through the software I created for errors (I've created quicker code, but not found any errors after using several methods of searching) I have decided to use 2-3 days for implementing a much more advanced algorithm, which enforces the epipolar constraint, and thereby "fixes" the problem of image noise...
If you're interested, an article named "Triangulation" from Hartley and Sturm, published in 1997 (sorry if any detail is wrong, no ill intention).
Hope this post helps you,
