Huge Giga pan Photos create a way for the viewer to interact with images like never before.

Cameras that theoretically record 1 trillion frames per second! So fast light can be recording in waves as it moves, and images can be taken from around corners with no clear sight lines.

What is next, how do these rapidly developing technological advances change photography as art?

What other new science is out there that will change the theory and practice of photography?

Don't forget the lightfield camera that can selectively focus after the shot is taken.

Personally, I think the really exciting thing is the real-time HDR that NVIDIA has been showing off for the last couple of days.

Of course, is photography the future? Or is video? What if that huge gigapan was a movie? What if you could interact with it?

Who knows. There's a ton of stuff happening now.

Me? I'm just trying to hack together a camera that looks like it came from a century ago, but costs more and is harder to use, plus it probably won't ever take a photo that is completely sharp and doesn't suffer from horrible vignetting... (sound fun?) That's my future I think. At least for a while.

I think how the image is capture is a huge part of the art. I come from a performance art background and people who think photographers never perform have never seen a street photographer, or multi camera, HDR mediumto large format specialists in action. How the photo is captured often legitimizes the careers of art photgraphers. Using antique gear or creating your own is like Michealangelo mixing the best color blue out of all his contempories because of his knowledge of plants. I would love to see your unsharp heavily vignetted images, and if you stood on one foot while you took the longer exposures, that may even improve the art of it as well :)

That selective focus thing is crazy, and actually affordable, I just can't see a practical use for it... maybe in video installations that encourage interactivity? Short product gif's I dunno .

That real time hdr is new to me, thanks for mentioning it, very cool!

Here's a thread on it - I'm currently designing the beta build of this thing. The alpha build is awesome, but a real pain in the ... :)

Really though, comparing me to Michealangelo is ridiculous, perhaps a more valid comparison is Fred G. Sanford. ;)

They are working toward an "invisibility cloak" which will bend light around an object and reassemble the beams on the other side, making the object effectively invisible. There's been some limited progress in this field, as well as in "teleportation" ...

That's a very cool thread Cory! I applaud your efforts. radioactive equiptment and all. Those lenses look very impressive.
