A multicamera, array camera, cluster camera, or "supercamera" incorporates two or more component cameras in a single system that functions as a camera with superior performance or special capabilities. Many camera arrays have been built by many organizations, yet creating an effective multicamera has not become significantly easier. This paper attempts to provide some useful insights toward simplifying the design, construction, and use of multicameras. Nine multicameras our group built for diverse purposes between 1999 and 2017 are described in some detail, including four built during Summer 2017 using some of the proposed simplifications.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
