We present a simple reconstruction algorithm for three-dimensional (3D) incoherent source distributions imaged by a laterally scanned pinhole camera. We consider digital sampling of multiple pinhole images for 3D reconstruction and implement an experimental demonstration with lateral resolution of 2×10-3 rad and longitudinal resolution of approximately 0.14z2 m , where z is the object-to-pinhole distance in meters.
