An array camera assembles multiple images into a super-resolution image. The array camera collects images of a scene from both a monochrome and a color image sensor as well as depth information about the scene. Typically, small movements by a camera operator diminish the clarity of the recorded images for conventional cameras. The array camera, however, models the rotational and translational movement of the array camera and combines the depth information to construct a three-dimensional representation of the scene. Using the three-dimensional representation and the modeled movements of the array camera, the array camera assembles a super-resolution image from the lower resolution images recorded by each sensor.
