With regards to image quality, there are a few broad steps in the evolution of photography:
- The past: film-based photography with strict limits on exposure, development, dynamic range.
- The present: digital photography with raw capture affording considerable control over image capture and image processing after capture.
- Evolving to: computational photography layered onto image capture, during or after, including multiple exposures combined into one for various purposes.
We are in the golden age of photography, with lenses that far outperform those of even a decade ago, coupled with digital cameras offering increasingly high quality captures. Along comes computational photography, a free quality upgrade available for raw files already shot!
