We analyze the noise sensitivity of the focal length computation, the principal point estimation, and the orthogonality enforcement for single-view 3-D reconstruction based on vanishing points and orthogonality. We point out that due to the nonlinearity of the problem the standard statistical optimization is not very effective. We present a practical compromise for avoiding the computational failure and preserving high accuracy, allowing a consistent 3-D shape in the presence of however large noise.
