The technology inside 80 million cameras

Have you built technology that sits inside 80 million cameras? Fotonation has. Two out of every three cameras sold today has its software included inside. It’s a brand name you’ve probably never heard about before today, but they build software that improves your images. I get a pretty cool inside scoop with the technologists behind the software that does things like remove red eye, improves autofocusing through face detection, and a lot more.

My producer, Rocky, put up two videos:

1. A 45-minute full interview and demo.
2. An eight-minute “highlights” version of that interview and demo for those of you who don’t have the time to watch the whole thing (which I’ve embedded here too).

Cool stuff and includes a discussion of digital camera trends and a look at technology that’ll come out next year at the big PMA show in Las Vegas. Plus you get to see how they tested their red eye reduction software.
