This paper presents a novel approach for modifying an
ordinary digital camera to be able to generate multior
hyperspectral images. The basic idea is to use
miniature (spatially and spectrally) overlapping colormosaic
filters with a spatial resolution which is as
close as possible to the actual resolution of the sensor
plate. What is new here is that common (cheap)
printing techniques can be used to produce these filter
mosaics. The resulting image which shows locally
filtered scene areas, can be transformed into a
hyperspectral image by considering each group of
neighboring pixels and transforming it into a single
image element in the final hyperspectral image.
