Computational photography has arrived

vas3k's: Computational Photography From Selfies to Black Holes is a great explainer

Computational photography has arrived. For an explainer, see vas3k's: Computational Photography From Selfies to Black Holes as predicted by yours truly in 2015 :-) in my post: Computational Photography is coming . Not that I'm a great prophet, in 2015 I was clearly right and in 2019 it's obvious I'm right what with the L16, . . .

Still here :-) Light L16 28-150mm zoom 16 cameraphone sensor camera is amazing

And the Light technology is starting to appear in bits and pieces in phones like the the Nokia 9 Pureview which is available for $US 699 on Amazon

Digital camera software by subscription is inevitable unless you are not connected to the internet

Operating system updates will break your digital camera software. Security vulnerabilities will be found that require updates too, etc, etc

Ultimate 21st century cam duo: iPhone 7 plus and?

PREDICTION:By 31Dec2017 there will be an awesome iPad Pro RAW editor

check back in Dec 2017 to see if I am right

Repeat from 2016 but updated for 2017: You get what you pay for :-) But I think all you need is something like Lightroom Mobile but programmed from an iPad Pro point of view first (i.e. including stylus and keyboard and solving the external storage / SD import problem AND not needing desktop sync or any other legacy kludges)!!!!!!

Kirk gets it on automatic camera sync

"The workflow is simple. Shoot and upload low resolution jpegs. When one is approved, then the raw file is uploaded. Any camera that makes this simpler is ahead of the game."

Great comment from a great Kirk Tuck post.
