Computational PhotographyFrom Selfies to Black Holes
It's impossible to imagine a smartphone presentation today without dancing around its camera. Google makes Pixel shoot in the dark, Huawei zooms like a telescope, Samsung puts lidars inside, and Apple presents the new world's roundest corners. Illegal level of innovations happening here.
DSLRs, on the other hand, seems half dead. Sony showers everybody with a new sensor-megapixel rain every year, while manufacturers lazily update the minor version number and keep lying on piles of cash from movie makers. I have a $3000 Nikon on my desk, but I take an iPhone on my travels. Why?
Computational Photography Will Revolutionize Digital Imaging
There is a paradigm shift taking place in the imaging industry with the introduction of computational photography. This field involves digital image capture and processing techniques that use digital computation or algorithms instead of standard optical processes ...
