While plenoptic still imaging, mostly due to the small baseline / frustum and the limited single sensor resolution, has not reached market impact, multi-view video remains to be a very hot topic. With baselines of only a small percentage of the picture width respectively height, multi-view video capture becomes sparse light field capture! This short paper introduces 5D sparse light field capture, i. e. a rig based capture system enabling a balanced spatial, angular and temporal resolution.
