Computational Photography :: From Selfies to Black Holes

by Volker Weber

There's a thing many people don't care, but it's crucial for understanding the entire mobile photography: Modern smartphone camera starts taking photos as soon as you open it. Which is logical, since it should show the image on screen somehow. But in addition to that, it saves high-resolution images to its cyclic buffer and stores them for a couple more seconds. No, not only for NSA.

Fantastic reading. This is going to take a while but it is very worth your time.
