Want to teach a digital camera new tricks? Stanford scientists’ open-source camera could change photography by giving programmers the power to change camera features and create new possibilities.

Virtually all the features of the Stanford camera — dubbed “Frankencamera” –including focus, exposure, shutter speed, flash, etc. are at the command of software that can be tweaked by programmers.

And the possibilities go beyond still photography alone: Researchers are working on an algorithm that will allow a camera to gather low-resolution video at 30 frames a second, to also periodically take a high-resolution still image.
