Are camera manufacturers missing the turn of computational photography?


I know that for a lot of you, computational photography is a gimmick. A desperate try to to imitate our precious MLC/DSLR features with a crappy minuscule smarphone sensor, with more than quesionable results.

But if you look just a few years back, the progress are actually tremendous! Sure, the results are still not perfect. But imagine we give that to a larger sensor camera (what may becom possible with the faster sensor readout speed we're progressively getting).

When I look a the super resolution mode of some recent MLC (e.g. Sony Alpha 7R IV), which requires to use a tripod and gives horribles artefacts on every moving elements (and at 61Mpx, almost everything is mvoving) and what Google is able to do with an handheld smarphone (shot stacking with subpixel precision, removal of moving objects), it looks like camera manufacturer live in prehistory.

What do you think ?
