What if you could make a blurred image become sharp? This is the promise of the Lytro Light Field Camera that does away with the need to focus your picture before you take it. In fact, the camera takes thousands of images at different focus distance and hence allows you to select the one with the subject you want to be in focus.
However, Adobe has now shown a deblur algorithm that promises to take an actual blurred image and make it sharp simply thru post processing. As you watch the video, at around the 1:18 mark, you can hear shouts of “No way, that’s impossible!” and hand clapping. Adobe has done fantastic things with its Photoshop image editing software and this will be yet another feather in its cap.
