Pros and cons were shuffled about on here some time ago

They're not selling in the UK at the moment but I got an email today heralding their sale in the Pacific rim. That came with some links to photographs taken in Aus. Some of the most dreadful I've seen in a while. The gimmick of altering the field of focus quickly becomes tired and at the total resolution these cameras are currently capable of (about HD screen res), I can't see how it offers much more than novelty.

A technology to watch perhaps, but for the moment one for the gadget freak methinks.

Umm, should have done a "previous topic" search before posting!

Someone at Photokina actually had one this year! It looks like a little bottle of perfume.

These were talked about sometime ago and I wondered then whether or not they'd be of any use as a macro tool.....I haven't anything on my fun Christmas Pressie list as yet either. So I'm wondering just how much they'll cost and when the release dates will be. Any chance Joshwa of ePz getting their hands on one for a review?

Very interested in the stacking possibilities for macro use.
After all, it's only software once the light field is captured Grin
