This paper describes a robust depth estimation algorithm for multi- focus plenoptic images. The main feature of the proposed method consists of a hybrid template matching scheme built-upon intensity and local phase information, which adapts to the blurriness of neigh- bouring lenslet microimages. By reducing the impact of defocus- blur on the template matching accuracy, the proposed method effi- ciently handles the varying triangulation baseline over the depth-of- field, thus discarding the need for scene-related information such as the expected range of disparities. Experimental results demonstrate the robustness of the proposed method over the most used commer- cially available depth estimation algorithm, achieving a reduction of 73% on the depth estimation error.
