Ten years ago if someone had told you that in 2011 everyone would have a webcam in their home or in their pocket, and that the cost of video chat was going to be zero, how many of us would have predicted that people still wouldn’t use it? This has been on my mind for 2 days now, so here’s what I came up with…Cell phone cameras, and web cam lenses are always wide angle lenses.
Telephoto lenses, on the other hand, show images without distortion but are way too “zoomed in” and compress near and far objects giving a shallow dept of field (subject is crisp, background is blurred) meaning it has to be focused just right or else the subject will be blurry. Number 2, they have a much more shallow depth of field so you either have to hold it the perfect distance away from your face and not move or make one that constantly auto re-focuses, which would get expensive.
So if you do the math, you realize that 5 relationships didn’t last, one did… And I’d tell you: seven years of experience with long distance dating, and about 5 years of passionately studying the topic of seduction and relationships…
when put together resulted in the most successful and fulfilling relationship that I’ve ever had or seen anyone else have.
So until someone creates a cheap hybrid lens to take care of this problem we’re stuck with wide angle lenses in our cell phones and web cams.
Fix: Wait until hybrid lens technology becomes smaller and cheaper /or/ use software to try to remove the distortion in real time.
