1. A camera system comprising:
a single lens; and
an image sensor including at least one pixel array, the at least one pixel array including a plurality of pixels in a two-dimensional arrangement and a single microlens disposed on the plurality of pixels to be shared,
wherein light shielding layers formed with Offset Pixel Apertures (OPAs) are disposed on at least two pixels of the plurality of pixels, respectively,
wherein the OPAs are formed on the light shielding layers to maximize a spaced distance between the OPAs; and
wherein an offset f-number associated with the spaced distance between the OPAs and each height of the at least two pixels is larger than an f-number of the single lens.
