Computational Photography Prototype

Prototype developed in collaboration with the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalucía team formed by:

  • LCD of 160x104 pixels.
  • Only 104x104 are used.
  • LCD size: 78x61x2.8mm.
  • 4 gray levels per pixel.
The setup:
  • Nikon D5000
  • 12.3 Mpixel DX sensor
  • CMOS, 23.6 x 15.8 mm.
  • Lens: Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8 D


It can be mounted as a filter on any 52mm diameter lens. We used a Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8 D.


Mounted on the lens.

Light weight.

Despite its size it is very comfortable to take pictures with it attached.


Mask editor
(still on development)

  • 4 gray levels.
  • 104x104 masks.
  • Will allow to create a mask from an image.
  • Will allow to transfer the masks from and to the prototype.

LCD displaying the transferred mask.

A connection to the computer is only needed for transferring the masks.
