Waverfront Coded Imaging: Infinite Depth of Field at Large Aperatures

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Nicholas O. Lindan, Apr 10, 2005.

  1. Wavefront Coded Imaging:

    By manipulating the digital data from a system equipped with a lens
    more suited to a Diana - in which everything is uniformly fuzzy -
    depth of field can be dramatically increased.



    "Wavefront coded imaging systems typically consist of a
    digital detector, conventional optics retrofitted with
    an optical element which has a surface which is non-spherical
    and circular asymmetric."

    The new system is described starting Page 6.

    Google for "waverfront coded imaging" for more.

    Digital imaging is going to get a whole lot more interesting.
    How long until a consumer version appears?

  2. - "Haven't we seen this before, some years ago already?"

    - "Yes, we have."

    - "What has become of it since then?"

    - "Well, it's still being presented as something new. So..."

    - "Oh..."
