Pelican Imaging‘s revolutionary 16-lens array camera for mobile devices features all-in-focus image capture, linear measurement, and 3D video capture. The company has released a video showcasing the groundbreaking capabilities of the array camera.

It’s applications include refocusing after capturing still images and video footage with depth information, selecting multiple objects of focus, measuring the distance between any two points, or creating a depth map/3D model of any scene.

The video shows off the array camera’s whole-scene focusing and depth mapping being used at a wedding. A guest captures detailed shots of the big day and also creates 3D-printed figures of the bride and groom on the spot. Pelican Imaging CEO and President Christopher Pickett said:

In our video pieces, we are illustrating creative examples of our vision for depth-enabled features. The applications for this technology are endless. We’re looking forward to working with our customers, strategic partners, and third party application developers to bring Pelican’s mobile array camera to market in late 2014.
