Plenoptic Camera Market: Introduction

Plenoptic camera is a field camera that acts as an imaging device. It allows focus on any part of the image after capturing. Light field cameras provide access to all available data about object-related light rays in a picture. The optical plenoptic characteristic offers a medium to recognize a given point where light extends through five distinct dimensions (5D) in a scene: two dimensions to define the place the light reaches at that point and three other dimensions to determine the point's position. The information generated by the light field is stored in conjunction with the software and image data, either online or on the camera, allowing refocusing of the pictures or images to display relevant information for the selected area. 3D cameras or light field cameras are gaining traction nowadays. Few main suppliers are concentrating on various approaches in the light field camera industry and extending in a broad spectrum of electronics and services markets. Plenoptic camera captures various sequences of tiny pictures from distinct points of view, which can later be manipulated according to the requirement. The expanding travel industry is one of the main drivers of the plenoptic camera market.
