Digital holography is applied to the reconstruction of small particles in a plane whose orientation is arbitrary as specified by the user. The diffraction pattern produced by the particles is directly recorded by a conventional CCD camera. The digital recorded image enables the recovery of particle-images in several parallel planes of the probe volume. Afterwards, an interrogation slice corresponding to a thin layer around a theoretical arbitrary tilted plane is fixed. The pixels whose 3D coordinates belong to this slice are selected and juxtaposed to rebuild the particle images. The feasibility is demonstrated on a fiber tilted with respect to the camera plane. A second example is given on an experimental particle field. These results let us predict future applications such as the characterization of particle fields in planes other than those parallel with the camera plane.
