Abstract. In recent years, the demand for inexpensive, simple, and highly accurate 3D measurement has been increasing. Representative methods, photogrammetry, and shape from focus (SfF) have limitations in terms of measurement time and labour. In order to solve them, computational photography (CP) has been proposed. A light field camera, based on CP, has also been developed. It has a feature to acquire multi-view and multi-focus images simultaneously in one shot. It is possible to perform 3D measurements with less time and labour for photographing and calculation processing using these images. In this study, we combined the photogrammetry as applied to multi-view images with the SfF as applied to multi-focus images using a light field camera. We applied the proposed method to a rigid body and verified its accuracy. We confirmed that the proposed method achieved more accurate results than the photogrammetry and the SfF method. Furthermore, we applied the proposed method to screws and cracks on walls of buildings and affirmed its applicability. Finally, we suggested future work on the developed method.
