Recently, various technologies have become available for scanning real-world objects, enabling rapid and accurate shape acquisition. In most cases, such solutions have high cost, lack portability and require a considerable amount of user intervention. We present a lightweight, point-andshoot 3D camera, intended for reconstruction of smooth surfaces. Our approach extracts 3D shape from a single image and is completely automatic. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach by capturing the
