Google Loses Chief Camera Engineer to Adobe

These days the kind of camera that a smartphone has is the sort of thing that can mean the difference between people wanting to buy it and people not wanting it at all, and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that people use these cameras to capture their daily lives and many people use them in a professional capacity as well which would indicate that this is a factor that no smartphone manufacturer can skimp out on if they truly want their product to be as successful as possible.

With all of that having been said and out of the way it is important to note that Google managed to get a lot of success with its Pixel smartphone, and the reason behind this is that it had a really good camera. However, with the release of the Pixel 4 and the criticism surrounding it, Google started facing trouble with its Chief Camera Engineer for Pixel, namely Marc Levoy. Levoy was instrumental at changing the way people thought about Pixel phones, but at the end of the day there seems to have been a lot of discontent coming from him because of the fact that his LinkedIn profile page now reveals that he has started working for Adobe.

His job title will be “Vice President and Fellow” and his main job will involve working on a camera that Adobe is trying to develop called the Photoshop Camera. This indicates that Google might not be keeping some of its most important employees as happy as they need to be, and it will interesting to see if any other top executives end up being poached by competitors. This will also indicate an end to Google’s enormous monopoly which will completely change the course of the future for the entire tech industry.
