We present a single-shot wide-field CCD based coherence-gated imaging technique that utilizes spatially separated phase-stepped images and requires only one CCD camera to achieve simultaneous acquisition of four phase-stepped images. This technique provides a relatively low cost system for depth-resolved imaging of dynamic samples. We demonstrate real-time coherence-gated imaging of a moving watch cog, 3D reconstructions of a coin, phase measurements of the surface of a test-chart and depth-resolved imaging in a weakly scattering sample of onion.
