Depth: the Future of Imaging – YouTube.

An interesting video from Pelican Imaging folks advocating new forms of 3D imaging.

Capturing depth is the next step in photography. Experts weigh in: Kartik Venkataraman (Pelican Imaging), Raj Talluri (Qualcomm), and Hao Li (USC). What does the future of imaging look like when we can use our phones to capture photos and video in 3D?

ANYONE who has witnessed the megapixel one-upmanship in camera ads might think that computer chips run the show in digital photography.

That’s not true. In most cameras, lenses still form the basic image. Computers have only a toehold, controlling megapixel detectors and features like the shutter. But in research labs, the new discipline of computational photography is gaining ground, taking over jobs that were once the province of lenses.
