Wow: This Algorithm Can Separate Reflections from Photographs

Wow: This Algorithm Can Separate Reflections from Photographs Researchers at Google and MIT have figured out a way to automatically remove reflections and obstructions from photographs, and their latest demo of the technology is amazing. Check out the 6.5-minute video above for an explanation of the algorithm and some examples of what it can do. We first reported on this research project back in May, when it was announced by MIT without much in the way of examples or demos. Now we have a better idea thanks to this new demo.

A Tribute to the Original Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8, the Lens That Saved My Career With this week’s announcement of the new Nikkor 24-70 VR, I wanted to take a moment to look back on what its predecessor, the 24-70mm f/2.8G, has meant to me. In the last eight years, I have only shot five (YES 5) images with a lens other than the 24-70 G.From the cover of Billboard magazine to the ad campaigns that have been featured in the Communication Arts Photo Annual, Archive’s Top 200 Advertising Photographers and the Graphis Advertising Annual, the 24-70 G has sat, married to the D3x for them all. The very first time I ever spoke for Nikon, I spoke about what the 24-70 G meant...
