We propose a phase-shifting interferometry technique using only two in-line phase-shifted self-interference holograms. There is no requirement for additional recording or estimation in the measurement. The proposed technique adopts a mathematical model for self-interference digital holography. The effectiveness of the proposed technique is demonstrated by experiments on incoherent digital holographic microscopy and color-multiplexed fluorescence digital holography with computational coherent superposition. Two-color-multiplexed four-step phase-shifting incoherent digital holography is realized for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, using the proposed technique.
