Light Fields on the Cheap

  title={Light Fields on the Cheap},
  author={Jason C. Yang and jcyang},
This paper presents a new light field capture system where the main design goal is low cost. To minimize cost we use an off-the-shelf flatbed scanner as the digitizing element. However, intrinsic properties of scanners can adversely affect resultant images. We will survey these properties and their effects in raw outputs. Image manipulation techniques will then be discussed so that proper light field datasets for image-based rendering can be formed. Color plates (figures 9, 11-19) located at… CONTINUE READING
