What else is new?

  • Truesense Imaging launched KAI-02170 1" CCD sensor with 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution (up to 60 fps) and KAI-04070 4MP sensor (2048 x 2048) based on 7.4um pixels in a 4/3 optical format (up to 28 fps).
  • Check out this mirrorless digital camera concept by Mårten Andersson:

  • the key to that memoto thing would be organisation of the photos of which there’ll be a ton. plus it ll start getting trippy when you start seeing photos of you reviewing photos of the photos you reviewed 2 days before.

    • why? Do it as i do with all photos. Never deleted anything


      when i want to be specific:




      then i can go back to it when i want, not spend time sorting something i might never need

      • haha

        Bet your Year/Month/Day_Nekkid_Girls_By_Pool folder has files duplicated in your Year/Month/Day_Children_playing folder

  • St.

    I like the Photoshop cs6 prototype plugin more. Hope they will release it some day!

    About the smartdeblur app, I studied this sort of thing at university. It is not a new concept by any means but it’s nice to see it implemented in a consumer application. It is possible in theory to perfectly reconstruct a misfocused image but in practice this would require near infinite amounts of computing power.

    • Ronan

      Back to studying for you since blurring algorithm are not infinitely random.

      The CIA and FBI have been enhancing images for a very long time. On one opportunity i saw them work on a very low resolution B&W image that they reconstructed into a high res image of a moving vehicle. They were able to read the VIN NUMBER of the car.

      That was 3 years ago.

        Yeah, I’ve seen that a million times on TV as well, must be true – winkwink.

        Andy has got it right, works in theory, but in real life if you want to use that for photos and produce high-quality output .. forget it. The principal displayed here is from a textbook, nothing more, I’ve tried the same thing myself and concluded I could spend a lifetime “trying” to make it practical and useful for high-quality output.

        There are other techniques for creating true hi-res from low-res, most specifically by using multiple shots (e.g. video), which could be useful in “forensics”, but again less so for high-quality output.

        @ronan, that’s not what I said at all. Nowhere did I say that the blur was infinitely random. That doesn’t even make sense as you would not be able to reconstruct the image at all if that were the case, and clearly you can.
        Might I suggest you go back to school and learn how to read.
        As computing power is limited, the algorithms that are used are approximations. Some better than others. Reconstructing legible text and high quality photos are very different things. Why don’t you go look at the linked pictures and you’ll see what I mean.

  • Pretty impressive designs there.

    The Memeto thingy made me think of the movie “The Final Cut”. Not good.

    • Scott M.

      Or, the “Truman show” movie. This is taking the Facebook concept of “everything I do is important and must be documented” thing to rediculous levels.

    This device might lead to some interesting criminal justice discussions.
