Light field is used to define how light rays transmits through the free space and several lenses, and finally integrates into an image. Traditional cameras record a 2D projection of the light rays integration, which loses a lot of information, especially with respect to each light ray’s angular direction. Light field cameras are designed to resolve the light rays integration and capture the directional information, which is useful in many applications. This talk will focus on recent progress in light field imaging and its applications.
