In doing research for a presentation on computational photography, I was asked a very interesting question:

"What is the difference between computational photography and computer vision?"

 

This is actually a more intriguing question than it appears because it brings into question the definition of computer vision.

 

I have my own opinions but I do not want to bias the comments.  Please comment by replying what you think is the answer to the above question.

 

On the subject of computational photography I did find a very good, free, text boot that covers the material.
