We began this editorial with the observation that today photography is mobile photography. We conclude by predicting that in a few years, photography will be mobile computational photography. The Mobile Computational Photography conference (and the corresponding special section in JEI) devoted to this important field will grow and flourish with it, and we can look forward to many exciting innovations in many different areas. As miniaturization of optics continues, there will need to be different approaches to dealing with noise and the diffraction limit, both optically and computationally. Increasing sensor density, sensor size, and wafer-level optics will allow new modes and mechanisms for lightfield capture. The ever-increasing availability of computational power on mobile platforms (in the forms of CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs) will enable new modes of image processing. The mobile platform will also provide new opportunities for tighter integration of capture and processing. As increasingly sophisticated photographic capabilities are placed in the hands of ever more people, the creative impact of mobile computational photography will likely be even more profound than the technological impact. We look forward to future years of exciting new results in these (and many other) areas in mobile computational photography.
