research links digital images and cameras

Binghamton University research links digital images and cameras

Child pornography aside (not trivializing this issue, just pointing out other uses) this would be a good tool. Heck, it simply woul eliminate the issue of digital watermarking that many people use today to 'fingerprint' digital works. It wouldn't eliminate this for works that were completely digitally created (say via Photoshop or some other graphic editor) but images that are used directly from a digital camera would work.

This begs the question, will it work with remastered or touched up photos? The article is not deep enough to answer this, but I think the answer would be "not for certain".
