Hybrid-resolution multispectral imaging is a framework to acquire multispectral images through a reconstruction procedure using two types of measurement data with different spatial and spectral resolutions. In this paper, we propose a new method for such a framework on the basis of a full-resolution RGB image and the data obtained from an image sensor with a multispectral filter array (MSFA). In the proposed method, a small region of each image band is reconstructed as a linear combination of RGB images, where the weighting coefficients are determined using MSFA data. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is shown by simulations using spectral images of natural scenes.
