Lensless Camera Now Takes Multi-View Pictures

Jun 26 2013, 4:06pm CDT | by , in News | Technology News

Lensless Camera Takes Multi-View Pictures Now
 
 

Bell Labs have created the first lensless multi-view camera to take one photo with multiple angles at same time. This new technology has lit up the imagination of the world’s photographers.


It has no lens and also doesn’t require any focusing whatsoever. The all-new camera from Bell Labs has the capacity to take shots from many dimensions. According to MIT Technology Review, it produces pictures with more depth and definition. This could prove vital to the digital camera business. The original has no glass or plastic lens in its makeup. Only an LCD surface that opens and closes is present. Each pixel catches an image. By a combination of multiple images the whole view is constructed. Each image is an impression of the scene in a different manner. The reassembly of all the random shots makes the creative picture in the end. What this means is that the camera can practically recreate a picture from the impressions of a single pixel. You can add another sensor and thereby produce a brand new angle from which the image can be seen. This reminds one of the Nokia 808 PureView.

Such cameras that do more than make a shoddy recording of the scene are the “in” thing today. Lytro too has a similar facility. Images can be focused again after they have been taken. Currently, the Bell Labs prototype is too huge and unwieldy to be confined to a mobile device. But with the future lying open, the size issue can be managed. On the leading edge, this imaging gadget can triumph in technological terms given a few tweaks here and there.

Hong Jiang and associates began experimenting with this model at Bell Labs. They lent this unique camera the power of compressive sensing. One thing is clear as the light of day. The more snapshots are taken the better and more detailed the image will be. However, even with a single pixel the marvel that will be created before your eyes will be amazing. Truly this is a miracle of photonics. The practical applications of this object of desire are simply diverse. The spinoffs and ramifications are too many to even contemplate. But the first pragmatic use would be in mobile devices and smart phones. There the gizmo will fit in very well as an image-collector of sorts. After all a picture is not just a picture. It is a facsimile of reality and it is possible that one fine day such realistic holograms will be produced that reality will appear stale in comparison.
