Post-processed for the latitude
There have been lots of exciting news and launches of compact serious cameras lately. Nikon's P7000, Sony's a55 (sort of compact), Oly's E-5 (to be launched on 14 September), Samsung's NX100 .... While Nikon says it is moving towards the development of new concepts in its future cameras, with or without the mirror, Canon has shown its capability to produce cameras which can shoot exceptionally high-resolution movie (and the implications for still shots?). Sony's new translucent think for its a55 is also a heartening news for the photography community. The directions are going to be diverse, it seems.
So, what is next after all these expected and suggested new cameras become reality? Maybe cameras which can see highly contrasty scenes as the human eyes see'em, and take photos using the lights invisible to the bare eyes? Let's keep our fingers crossed that the camera makers focus less on the gimmicks.
The shot today was post-processed for making it closer to what the eyes could see at the scene. It was taken at a local park in Melbourne.
