Digital Photography

Abstract

Photography has evolved considerably in the two centuries since its invention. Advances have allowed us to take more sophisticated, accurate photos with less technical knowledge. The introduction of semiconductor image sensors and embedded processors has formed the foundation for the latest set of advances. This book studies the range of technologies that have enabled us to build smart cameras. The move to smart cameras enables three trends, each of which we will analyze through the book and introduce in this chapter: previsualization and autoprevisualization, automated enhancement of photographs, and cameras that produce analytical summaries rather than photographs.
