Re-adjustable focus tech
Seems pretty nifty, even if it sort of negates a lot photographer skills....

You mean like thinking about what you're doing....
Last nail in the photoghraphy coffin then, anyone wanna buy some photgraphy equipment?
There doesn't appear to be a way of getting everything in focus. You can shift the area of focus, but not the DoF

Similar was said when autofocus came along!
I saw an article on this tech a couple of years back on DPreview, but can't remember the principles all that clearly [and this website is a bit opaque]. It doesn't seem to mention silly little details like availability or price either.
Unless I'm missing something I imagine there would have to be a large amount of available light for this to work. Still very interesting though - has even bigger implications for lens investment than for bodies I suppose.
I only see an invitation to give an unknown entity my private email address Nik.
Use a "spam collector" email address - everyone should have one!
Mike, that is to reserve a camera (read the message!). Just click on the Picture Gallery tab to see the photos.....

Really? It opens up a few possibilities in relation to focusing.... merely one aspect of photography. And arguably an aspect of only middling importance.
As has been said, it seems to do nothing about DoF or indeed (as somebody or the other said! ) "Making a picture with your mind".
looks like using a camera with a lens baby on it, and only having about f4 to use the whole time..... no real different to compact cameras, and i doubt it will affect pros anyway, as the people using the camera will be complete novices.... perhaps..... although there is a piece of software out not so long ago that let you do this with any picture you took, on any camera..... now thats clever.
In my opinion, it's similar to what the masses do with their mobiles, but they can't compete with dslr's surely?
This is why I never went down the mp3 route. I prefer playing with my Hi-Fi, thank you very much!
It's nothing very new. There a video, which I recall was posted on EPZ a while ago, about an Adobe prototype here.
It will never catch on. (As the stagecoach manufacturer said about the first motor car! )
I saw a video about it on YouTube. not sur what was going
on completely as I didn't have the sound on but it looks like
they take loads of small sections when a picture is taken that
overlap a little ( looks like a compound eye image before processing )
and it's all in focus. the oof bit seems to be calculated by using
depth information stored in each bit / pixel.
Something that's done quie easily with CG imagery, by rendering
a depth pass, but I've not seen it done in the real world so far.
I guess though, that the images would be quit low quality and
low mp count especially if the aim is to produce an affordable camera
using the tech. The sensor would need to be pretty big I reckon.
Perfect snaps for every one
