At the point of capture, your image is taken with multiple sensors and lenses simultaneously. Some will be tele, some will be wideangle, some with different exposures, some will point in slightly different directions, and perhaps some will see ultra violet or infra red. After capture of the raw data in all the sensors, it is treated to the compute power of your camera. The camera will scale the image up with perfectly sharp, clean pixels and it will calculate all the missing details and color transitions the single sensor/lens/exposure combo could not catch. This is done with algorithms analyzing the combined sensor input to effectively predict and put the optimal pixels into the image. Then your augmented reality settings are applied and the final image is saved. That means we do not finalize the image before manipulation is completed, and this will increase the basic image quality tremendously. Things like experience with lighting and it's direction, knowledge of optimal depth of field aperture selection and selected shutter speed will no longer be strictly necessary. But this goes even further, because the camera could also guide or even choose things like focal length, composition, portrait setup (Smile, clothes and so forth) to make the perfect image. There will also be a RAW capture image file available for amateur photographers, so you can select and apply many of the capture settings afterwards if you which to change your image.
And it will all be automatically available in your smartphone or purpose purchased pocket camera.
This technology will see the entire camera industry completely disrupted, and in the longer term, output quality straight from a smartphone camera will probably be better than even photoshop'ed images from medium format camera's of today.
This sounds both fantastic for your everyday camera user, and rather gloomy for your bread and butter photographer. Earlier on I deliberately used the wording "a pro", for referring to photographers who successfully makes a living from their trade. In my opinion there will always be a place for a select group of people, who has that extra vision in their work - that extra something - that you cannot just replicate or think up. They are the ones that bring new idea's to the table, and has the tenacity to see an idea through no matter how much work it requires. Something an algorithm will never do for you - it takes human inspiration and ingenuity to get there.
