I’m sure you can see the writing on the wall. As more and more apps appear on cell phones, and point and shoot cameras, the immediacy of being able to edit images has become a large trend in every area of photography except perhaps DSLR shooting. Even then, tablets tethered, via a wire or wirelessly, to a DSLR and creating a hybrid system for taking an image and instantly manipulating it.
The question I have for you is; Do you want editing controls in-camera?
The popularity of Instagram and other apps like it is starting to bare out a desire in consumers to be able to instantly manipulate images after shooting and sometimes even before saving them. But we have seen trends like this before in digital photography. Think of the craze of HDR (more specifically, overdone HDR) and how it seemed rampant and has since cooled. Like many fads. (Note: I am not calling HDR a fad, it’s not. The desire to overuse the effects of HDR had a noted increase, peak and has since decreased in perceived popularity among the general populace).
Is this desire to add a toy camera filter to an image or apply Fuji Velvia like qualities just a passing fad?
For my own take on the debate, here are some things I would like to see added to DSLRs (before we simply switch over to neural implants, which surely are coming in a matter of time):
If you’re reading this post you are more interested than the general populace when it comes to photography. You have an active interest and that’s why I am curious about your take on the ability to instantly control images in-camera. Not only let us know if you want more control in-camera, but also let us know what controls make sense in-camera and which are still best left to a larger processor and screen.
