On Plenoptic Multiplexing and Reconstruction
Photography has been striving to capture an ever increasing amount of visual information in a single image. Digital sensors, however, are limited to recording a small subset of the desired information at each pixel. A common approach to overcoming the limitations of sensing hardware is the optical multiplexing of high-dimensional data into a photograph. While this is a well-studied topic for imaging with color filter arrays, we develop a mathematical framework that generalizes multiplexed imaging to all dimensions of the plenoptic function. This framework unifies a wide variety of existing approaches to analyze and reconstruct multiplexed data in either the spatial or the frequency domain. We demonstrate many practical applications of our framework including high-quality light field reconstruction, the first comparative noise analysis of light field attenuation masks, and an analysis of aliasing in multiplexing applications.
MATLAB Color Calibration ToolboxThe toolbox can be used to compute color compensation matrices from images of a color checker (Gretag-Macbeth 24 patches, Colorchecker DC 240 patches, or ColorcheckerSG 140 patches). Since version 2.0 the software can also estimate radiometric camera response curves from an exposure stack of a color checker.

Focal Stack PhotographyFocal Stack Photography has been a project of the lecture "Computational Photography 2010".
There are some data sets available on the project page containing up to 500 shots.
Some of the data sets are also available in 20 mega pixel resolution and raw format.
