Abstract
We suggest a new 3D-camera system for integral photography (IP). Our method enables high resolution three-dimensional imaging by employing a low-definition electronic camera. In contrast to conventional IP a moving microlens array (MLA) is used. The intensity distribution in the MLA image-plane is sampled sequentially by using a pinhole array. The inversion problem from pseudoscopic to orthoscopic images is dealt with by electronic means. The new method is suitable for real-time three-dimensional imaging. We verified the new method experimentally. Integral photographs with a resolution of 3760 pixel x 2560 pixel (188 x 128 element images) are presented.
