Far-field in-line holography has been studied in detail when one or both of the beams used for recording and reconstruction are Gaussian. The contrast of the high frequency interference fringes and hence their recordability have been investigated with a specific example of the object having circular cross section. For reconstruction the effects of uniform as well as Gaussian beams are studied and compared.
