Digital cameras are an essential part of our daily life, e.g. in mobile phones, camcorders, digital photography, cars, and in imaging applications for medical, industrial and broadcasting industries. All these camera applications rely on the solid-state image sensors.
However, if consumers were forced to choose a digital camera on the basis of the raw data produced by the imager, it would be very doubtful that anyone of us would buy a digital camera. The data produced by a solid-state image sensor is contaminated by various noise sources, by defects, by inconsistencies, and many other error sources. To make matters worse, the solid-state image sensors do not themselves produce a coloured image. It is the data processing that must correct all these potential errors and even regenerate the colour information in the post-processing stage. So, what a person actually sees on a display or hard copy is absolutely not the same as what the imager has captured. Luckily - "What you see is not what you got!"
As we can foresee that our homes, offices and cars soon will be fully equipped with cameras to make life safer and more enjoyable and to reduce our workload, we can recognize the digital camera technique as a forefront technology. For many applications imaging is in the embryo stage of its development.
