From photography to ubiquitous capture systems

Albrecht Schmidt, Bastian Pfleging, Christian Holz, Lars Erik Holmquist

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The invention of the charged-coupled device (CCD) lead to the development of digital cameras, which, in the last decade, have replaced nearly all analogue cameras for consumer use. The authors reflect on the move to digital photography and the implications of having a ubiquitous computing technology replaced an 'old' product - in this case, analog photography. They explore how innovations in a single product (the camera) can affect the entire ecosystem (how to store, access, and share photos).
