When are we or anyone else going to release the "human eye" lens? It can handle a huge dynamic range, no CA, heaps of post-processing done "in the box", variable ISO over all parts of the image, and has unbeatable resolution.
Downsides: crappy memory storage that degrades rapidly over time, fixed focal length, bits of organic material floating around the lens filter, and took 500 million years to develop, has to feed, house and clothe an entire body to keep it going...:)
I don't see it hapening any time soon...

Wouldn't that be great.. Basically no need for a camera, just find a way to store images in your brain and handle them as tangible files. :)

There'll be a "Direct Print" button in place of the navel. Of course, I wouldn't care for a print, thank you.

Actually, we have it. Photoshop is it. The human eye does not do any post-processing "in the box" any more than a camera does.

Photoshop does with the raw data from the camera what the brain does with raw data from the eye, including HDR, dodging and burning, correcting CA, et cetera.

It wouldn't solely be the lens that we'd need... it's the sensor too.

Yes, very true. It's a crappy sensor for the eye that inverts the image and has a big hole in it where it's "USB" (if you will permit me) plugs into the brain. Brain does all the photoshop stuff. And does a pretty good job of it to...the best that we will ever experience, anyway.

Good idea, but I think it would be highly inaccurate when it comes to self-portraits.


Where you stand depends on where you sit....

Imagine taking a picture of an object traveling at the speed of light...
