Paper Abstract

Two imaging techniques are presented which can create remarkable images. The first technique is color holography which provides full parallax 3D color images with a large field of view. The virtual color image recorded in a holographic plate represents the most realistic-looking image of an object that can be obtained today. The extensive field of view adds to the illusion of beholding a real object rather than an image of it. The other technique is interferential color photography or Lippmann photography. This, almost forgotten, one-hundred-year-old photographic technique, is also remarkable. It is the only color recording imaging technique, which can be record the entire visible color spectrum. It is not based on Maxwell's three- color principle, the dominating principle behind most current color imaging techniques. The natural color rendition, make this 2D photographic technique very interesting. The reproduction of human skin and metallic reflections, for example, are very natural looking, which is not possible to record in ordinary photography.
