We present a novel method for the geometric calibration of micro-lens-based light field cameras. Accurate geometric calibration is the basis of various applications. Instead of using sub-aperture images, we utilize raw images directly for calibration. We select proper regions in raw images and extract line features from micro-lens images in those regions. For the entire process, we formulate a new projection model of a micro-lens-based light field camera, which contains a smaller number of parameters than previous works. It is transformed into a linear form using line features. We compute the initial solution of both the intrinsic and the extrinsic parameters by a linear computation and refine them via non-linear optimization. Experimental results demonstrate the accuracy of the correspondences between rays and pixels in raw images, as estimated by the proposed method.
