In the recent years, technology advances in sensors and image processing have allowed
significant improvements that encompass not only quality, but also image content analysis and
understanding. Consumer devices are now being equipped with sophisticated algorithms allowing
complex tasks such as face recognition, smile detection, automatic red eye removal, etc. In addition,
topics related to image forensics oriented to verify the authenticity of digital images, such as
camera identification and image manipulation detection are now available. This Chapter provides
an overview of the main topics representing a challenge to innovation both from hardware and
software point of view: Super Resolution, Temporal Demosaicing, Bracketing or High Dynamic
Range Reconstruction. Also some aspects of Computational Photography and Forensics Camera
Identification are briefly described. These topics represent the current trends and novel solutions
for the next generation of imaging devices.
