  • Before, you were waiting anxiously for your prints to come (disappointments)\nNow you wait for a workload. \n
  • How much time do you spend just on adjusting brightness and contrast ?\n
  • Same question for high dynamic range scenes such as inchurch\n
  • Or indoor\n
  • Another example\n
  • This imaging chain limitation generates frustration. Further, to get images back as we saw them requires lots of manual processing, adjustments, and is difficult to automate for several reasons : one, we do not model very well how the brain proceeds to "decide" what is a good image, second, the human process takes an average 10-15 minutes\n

  • Outdoor light can have a DR of 100,000 - 1. Our eyes (when given time to adjust the pupil) can see 1,000,000 - 1. Digital Cameras, Displays & Paper/Prints fall well below the capability of what can be seen in the real world, capturing as little as 50:1.\n If eyes could not adjust the retina, the DR would be similar to that of the Computer Monitor\n There lies the problem: How do we capture and display scenes with higher exposure values than current technology is capable of rendering?\n

  • Fb: 2 billion a month\n3 million for flickr\nImage quality still a big differentiator (Mega Pixel race, HDR, 3D)\nThis will start to affect broadcasting too\nOnly studio lighting makes it possible to broadcast without postproduction\nOutdoor footage still uncontrolled\nTV viewing affected too as a multisource display\nFrom the Photo Marketing Association: Digital photos by the numbers in 2009\n27 billion: Number of digital photos to be taken in the United States this year\n8.7 billion: Number of digital photos that will be printed this year\n(78: Percentage of U.S. households that have a digital camera (not including phones with cameras)\n25.7 million: Digital cameras expected to be sold in 2009 (down from 27.7 million in 2008)\n412: Pictures taken per year in the average household (roughly 1.13 shots per day).)\n
