Multi-dimensional light field imagery is bringing a new dimension to conventional photography, enabling the user to not only re-focus an image after taking the picture, but also change the image’s perspective, reconstruct scene depth, and even create true panoramic images. The Johannes Kepler University is carrying out research on these cutting-edge new technologies.
