Color-imaging methods with an integrated compound imaging system called TOMBO (Thin observation module by bound optics) are presented. The TOMBO is a compact optoelectronic imaging system for image capturing based on compound-eye imaging and postdigital processing. First, a general description of the TOMBO system is given, and then two configurations for color imaging are described. Experimental comparison of these configurations is made by use of an experimental TOMBO system. The characteristics and the performance on the proposed methods are briefly discussed.
