PLURAL FOCAL-PLANE IMAGING
2/10/2015 12:00:00 AM
An imaging system captures focused imagery from two or more focal planes, yet does so with relatively simple optical elements. Some arrangements involve folded optical paths, to make them more compact in size. Others enable the image sensors to be mounted in coplanar arrangement. Still others involve digital compositing, e.g., to mitigate undesired bokeh effects. A great variety of other features and arrangements are also detailed.
