Just got word that Marc Levoy, who previously led Computational Photography at Google has just joined @Adobe as a VP and fellow to work on CP initiatives, as well as a “Universal Adobe Camera App” 👀

This seems like a huge win for iOS users.

Google chose to never share the Pixel Camera app with other Android phones, let alone iPhone. (Yes, every company places limits on ‘openness’, usually right around where it starts making them money.)

iOS has a consistent, well-abstracted set of Camera API, as apps like FOCOS, Halide, Obscura, etc. have shown over the years.

So… Adobe Camera on iPhone could end up being far better supported than on any other phone.
