We evaluate the lateral resolution in reconstructed integral images. Our analysis takes into account both the diffraction effects in the image capture stage and the lack of homogeneity and isotropy in the reconstruction stage. We have used Monte Carlo simulation in order to assign a value for the resolution limit to any reconstruction plane. We have modelled the resolution behavior. Although in general the resolution limit increases proportionally to the distance to the lens array, there are some periodically distributed singularity planes. The phenomenon is supported by experiments.
