What's Next for Digital Photography?

Article: What's Next for Digital Photography?

Quote: "The 8MP sensor will become the low-end standard among snapshot all-in-one cameras. Improvements will come from support circuitry that improves image quality, contrast, and color. I'm told that some of the new processing chips coming down the pipe are phenomenal. The 5MP sensor will hold the pocket-camera category steady. Most experts see the 5MP sensor as one of the best CCDs you can get, and most people would find it optimal."

Question: Where do you see the digital photography industry heading in the upcoming years?

For consumer camera's, once they reach 8mp or so, there wont be much point in going any higher since it will be to much for the consumer. So probably branch off into new area's to give the consumer more features.

Perhaps 2 ccd chips to create 3d images, and with software you can turn the 3d images into 3d images to use with 3d glasses, 3d enviroments on the pc and probably future versions of the dvd player, and eventually hologram projectors.

Just a thought. :0)

lol, gerry sure is imaginative.

I believe there is still lots of scope for improvement.

Pixels are not the only thing

Larger sensor size, less noise, better compression algorithm. lets see when all this happens

Yeah, more than 8MP would be overkill for a consumer cam.

Of course, in today's "bigger must be better" world, if someone put out a 16MP camera phone, they would sell out in days.

I agree that the most beneficial areas of improvement now would be larger sensor size, noise reduction, etc rather than higher resolution.

What about a 3CCD still camera like video camera's now have? The images would be so much clearer...

I hope I wont be quoted in years to come by saying "8mp is more than enough", that reminds me of bill gates saying something like 24kb is more than enough ram, hehe.

And that is true about the 16mp camera phone, hehe. And knowing the camera companies I bet the phone will come with a 16mb memory card as well, which may be lucky to get 2 pictures on it if it compresses them enough, hehe. Just imagine the computer power youd need to work with that image as well. Of course thatll be years down the road and pc's will be faster as well.

But bigger isnt always better. you dont see consumers with medium or large format camera's. :0). Of course the size of them maybe the thing that is holding consumers from getting them.

Isn't that the premise behind Sigma's SD10 Foveon chip? A separate 3.3MP chip for each color, making a 10MP image, or some such?

Yeah, exactly... seperate chip for each color... it gives an actual megapixel reading as opposed to the "inflated" MP size we see around now.

I can see digital cameras going beyond RGB. I think we are just looking at the infant.
Can you imagine a camera with nine sensors?
A sensor for each colour in the spectrum, and one for light and one for dark.
With truer colours in all the right places, the photo would automatically gain greater depth, and look more like that 3D image.
Perhaps the need for additional lighting might also be done away with - as it all gets measured, and compensated, in camera.

This is the age of the micro chip - in which everything just gets smaller and smaller. The pen in your pocket is a 50gb high end pro camera. Not that this is called a pro camera - it's too common place for that.

Whats really worrying the digi-fans is that new contraption that is going to send digital into the history museums.
