Optical distortions caused by camera lenses affect the accuracy of the elastic strains and lattice rotations measured by high-angular resolution techniques. This article introduces an integrated correction of optical distortions for global HR-EBSD/HR-TKD approaches. The digital image correlation analysis is directly applied to optically distorted patterns, avoiding the pattern pre-processing step conducted so far while preserving the numerical efficiency of the Gauss-Newton algorithm. The correction implementation is first described and its numerical cost is assessed considering a homography-based HR-EBSD approach. The correction principle is validated numerically for various levels of first-order radial distortion over a wide range of disorientation angles (0 to 14 •) and elastic strain (0 to 5×10 −2). The errors induced when neglecting such distortions as well as the influence of both the radial distortion coefficient and the pattern centre and optical centre locations are quantified. Even when both reference and target patterns are distorted, the correction appears necessary whatever the disorientation between those patterns. The required accuracy on the true distortion parameters for an effective correction is consequently determined.
