What do you think will be the next great leap in photography technology?

I've got to believe that it can't be too much longer before we see in-camera HDR imaging. Your thoughts?

That would be a safe bet.

or just a sensor that would give us more dynamic range to work with while preserving both shadows and highlights.

I wanted to make sure I got the quote correctly, so I tracked it down. While important steps have been made in low light capabilities, in my opinion, they pale compared to Chuck Westfall's statement in the June 2006 PC Photo:

We’re increasingly seeing improvement in the manufacturing of sensors. Right now, we’re looking at a native ISO sensitivity of 100 to 200, but that could move up to 6400 and higher very quickly. When that happens, it will make a big difference in a photographer’s ability to create images under low light.

Sensor with native ISO 6400 would be a revolution in photography. If such cameras could maintain the luminance and chroma integrity of today's sensors at ISO 100.

Wouldn't that require the camera to be able to accept multiple exposure data beyond the current f-stop, aperture, and ISO settings you would be using?

DOF calculator/display and/or a focal length rule being broken warning buzzer. Much brighter focua point illumination could help. You see it in P&S clear as day yet many in the DSLR world miss it.

That could stop about 10 million lenses being returned or sent for service per year.

Essentially the breakthrough should come in usability for the newer shooters. Get some real people writing a manual. Or maybe 2 of them. One for technical one for shooting tips.

Full frame and some primes.

A medium format sensor in a 1D body would be nice.

An HDR feature would be potentially awesome, but then there would be even more of them, which isn't good!

What would it really take to do in-camera HDR?

Obviously the sensor can catch it with exposure compensation. What is so difficult about doing that shift over and above (and below) in one shot so you don't have to flip the dial?

Obviously you're just shifting the range right now when exposure compensating. But come on Canon! :mrgreen:

Why HDR, HDR is a technique to expand the limited dynamic range of todays sensor. A better bet is improve the dynamic range negating the need to HDR.

But my guess is that it is time for a new sensor. I think we have about tapped out what CMOS technology and the Bayer pattern can give us. It's time for something new. Foveon is trying something but that technology will never take off unless they dump the licensing and sell the technology to everyone but something along those lines.

Maybe it's time for these bio-chips to take off. Motorola has their new display based on bio-technology. Maybe they could turn that around and make a sensor that works like the human eye further upping the pixel count and resolving power and reducing the noise.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Dynamic range and high ISO noise are still significant obstacles to many shooting situations...I think that is where the most resources should be focused. AF accuracy should be next in line.
