In this paper, we propose a simple correction method of distorted elemental images for computational integral imaging reconstruction (CIIR) method by using surface markers on lenslet array. The position information of surface markers is extracted from distorted elemental images with geometric misalignments such as skew, rotation and so on. Then the elemental images can be corrected simply when applying linear transformation calculated from the extracted positions. Therefore, the proposed method can simply correct geometric misalignments such as skew and rotation. The corrected elemental images can provide the precise reconstruction of 3D plane images in CIIR. To show the usefulness of the proposed method, the preliminary experiments are carried out and the experimental results are presented. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report to deal with compensating for the distorted elemental images recorded by using computational integral imaging.
