We propose parallel phase-shifting color digital holography using two phase shifts. This technique enables the instantaneous acquisition of three-dimensional information of a moving color object. The interference fringe image that contains six holograms with two phase shifts for three wavelengths is recorded by a single shot exposure. Decreasing the degree of space-division multiplexing of these holograms makes it possible to suppress the degradation of the image quality owing to the aliasing caused by the multiplexing. Numerical simulation and preliminary experiments demonstrate the validity of the proposed technique; the reconstructed images of the proposed technique are clearer than those of the previously reported single-shot phase-shifting color digital holography that uses four phase steps.
