A simple and economical method of recording and reconstructing the Fraunhofer subhologram array is presented. In the readout process a collecting lens is placed in the plane of the subhologram array. The field distribution in some planes of the readout system is found. The reconstruction processes with different types of waves are theoretically described and discussed.
