Abstract

See full text

An image capturing element comprising photoelectric converting elements that are arranged two-dimensionally and photoelectrically convert incident light into an electric signal; aperture masks that correspond one-to-one with the photoelectric converting elements; and color filters that correspond one-to-one with the photoelectric converting elements. Among n adjacent photoelectric converting elements, where n is an integer no less than three, apertures of the aperture masks corresponding to at least three of the photoelectric converting elements are included within each pattern of a color filter pattern formed from at least two types of the color filters that respectively pass different wavelength bands, and are positioned to respectively pass light from different partial regions within a cross-sectional region of the incident light, and photoelectric converting element groups that are each formed of the n photoelectric converting elements are arranged in series.
