We propose a portable parallel phase-shifting digital holography system. Parallel phase-shifting digital holography is a technique capable of instantaneous and three-dimensional measurement of objects. This technique has been verified by an experiment on anti-vibration optical tables, but had not been realized as a system for practical use yet. Then, we designed a portable system of parallel phase-shifting digital holography for the purpose of practical use. The size and weight of the system are 450 mm (L)×250 mm (W)×200 mm (H) and less than 7 kg, respectively. We designed the configuration of the system in a way which can be easily changed to implement two types of parallel phase-shifting digital holographies. The system was constructed by the use of ready-made optical components. To confirm the validity of the system, the capability of the three-dimensional imaging free from the superimposition of the unwanted images, which was the problem accompanied with conventional in-line digital holography, with a single-shot exposure was successfully demonstrated.
