In certain applications, especially x-ray and gamma-ray photography, pinhole cameras provide one of the only methods of producing sharp images. To increase the image quality, the use of an array of multiple pinholes is found valuable. The resulting blurred image must then be decoded. A particularly direct method of decoding using the original array of pinholes is possible, providing the autocorrelation function of the array is sharply peaked. Preliminary results with representative arrays are discussed.
