We demonstrate pixelation-free real-time widefield endoscopic imaging through an aperiodic multicore fiber (MCF) without any distal opto-mechanical elements or proximal scanners. Exploiting the memory effect in MCFs, the images in our system are directly obtained without any post-processing using a static wavefront correction obtained from a single calibration procedure. Our approach allows for video-rate 3D widefield imaging of incoherently illuminated objects with imaging speed not limited by the wavefront-shaping device refresh rate.
