Such computational cameras or computational photography systems can provide a wealth of opportunities for both professional and casual photographers. Future cameras will let us"capture the moment,"not just the instant when the shutter opens.The moment camera will gather significantly more data than is needed for a single image.This data,coupled with automated and user-assisted algorithms,will provide powerful new paradigms for image making.
