Light field imaging has been emerging for the past view years. The capability of capturing the light field of a scene in a single snapshot has enabled new applications not just for consumer photography, but also for industrial and medical applications where characterization of color and shapes of objects is desired. In this paper we discuss some of those applications and show how the imaging tasks impact the end-to-end system design of a resulting task-specific light field imaging system.
