might make people ednlessly tweak their photos even more though
but takes the skill out of photography
Good photography ? sharp images
Photoshopped to fuck
and general snap shots which he thinks is what photography is most, which I can agree with because the fact is, the majority of people do using cameras for the average snapshot does out weigh the pros or those that want something more.
I love how much better cameras are becoming.
not quite as impressive as they seem to be making it out to be, each photo seems to have at most 3 different levels of focus.
But it's still very very cool.
that was first observation too. Could just be the limitations to the web-based application?
Also the sample photos don't seem to allow a large depth of field. It's always one point in focus and the closer/further objects out of focus. Again, this could just be because they've chosen images, etc. that best demonstrate a dramatic change in focus...
but it is very cool.
Some of the pictures were a bit grainy (is that the right word, I'm not a photography nerd) looking though.
The amount of data and processing power involved in turning these into images is massive; it's almost certainly not something you could do over flash or whatevs.
I'd love to see the quality of an actual image - hopefully the flash demo thing isn't representative as the images don't look great. If you could do what they're saying with super hi-res photos I'd definitely get one.
