Everyone who has ever picked up a camera has felt the unforgettable feeling of regret when you miss the perfect shot because of a focus problem. It's a gut wrenching feeling because you know you can't do anything about it.
Wrong! While the incredible technology used by the professionals on CBS's CSI hasn't yet been released, those of us who don't live in a TV Drama will soon be able to use a program called SmartDeBlur. This program uses a massive amount of programming to redistribute the out of focus data from your image into something usable. It even tailors its work to the specific type of blur affecting your image.
So while the program isn't perfect as you can see above, it's already seeing applications in law enforcement, in the courts and with private detectives.
So do you have a shot that was ruined by missed focus? Have you ever missed anything important? Let us know in the comments below.
