Cool. Especially: "Another algorithm that researchers have achieved in the lab, but no commercial camera allows, is enhancing the resolution of videos with high-resolution still photographs. While a camera is gathering low-resolution video at 30 frames a second, it could also periodically take a high-resolution still image. The extra information in the still could then be recombined by an algorithm into each video frame. "
This is exactly why it would be cool for Red to eventually allow us hackers more access than the current SDK.
I wonder how many Red ideas/patents the Stanford kids will stumble upon?
Of course, better still is just to take the full resolution on every frame, which is exactly what we do do.
They make it sound that it will be sold only to students and universities.
I wouldn't mind if my RED had an auto dynamic range mode. ;)
According to CNET, they use the camera module of the Nokia N95, so why bother. But there is some other nice "open source" hardware out there with a strong community support.
