No matter how sophisticated and expensive these camera lenses get, they just can't match the human eye when it comes to sophistication. At first I thought it was mostly 'Dynamic Range' that was lagging in camera/lenses, which we all know is a huge issue in photography, but now that I'm delving into Real Estate photography where angles, perspective and lighting are very important, I'm starting to learn about the limitations of these lenses. Of course our eyes can't see things like far-off planets in the night sky, Nebula and distant Galaxies. Our eyes cannot see the sweat running from an athletes forehead 300 yards away, our eyes can't see the hairs on a spiders legs, or the various microscopic bacteria and fungi that inhabit our world, but when it comes to everyday things, there is NO match between what we can see and what the camera sees. When it comes to dynamic range, which is the range between light and dark in a scene, the camera and lens seem to over emphasize whichever is the strongest light or dark ? When it comes to 3D it is very difficult to try to display something that is 3 dimensional on a flat 2 dimensional surface without going through all types of mental gymnastics and skillful manipulations. Artists and painters have been dealing with this problem for ages. Our eyes have no problems with these things. Suppose I see a lamp which is about 5 feet from me in my living room, behind the lamp is a couch which is about 7 feet from me, next to me is my cup of coffee which is about 1 foot from me, my eyes have no problems with this scene. Everything is in perfect focus and with 3 dimensional clarity ! Now if I tried to take a picture of this scene, (my lamp, my couch, my cup off coffee), I would have all kinds of distortions and focusing problems without the use of skillful lighting effects, sophisticated software, expensive lenses, photo experience, whatever, it just would not be easy. Our eyes have the ability to seamlessly go from wide angle to Tele focus in the blink of an eye without any bizarre distortions. There are no 'Blinkies' when we come across a scene with high dynamic range ! I can look up at a tall building without the bottom jutting out and the top shrinking. Of course our eyes are limited to certain things. My eyes need the help of a magnifying glass to read certain things... yet they still outmatch any lens that has ever been built so far, even if that lens cost 15K or more!
