Saw this on a gadget show the other night:

You can adjust the focus point AFTER taking the photo.
Thousands of micro lenses in front of the image sensor record thousands of focus points for each shot. Then you just click on where you want to focus on your computer screen and the photo focus snaps to that point. The TV demonstration looked fantastic although they did comment about image resoultion being low.

$50,000,000 capital invested to start up this product.

Anyone else heard of it? Any thoughts?

:confused:

Yes, I've heard of it and the potential is enormous, but the development is still in it's early stages so don't expect an E-7 with it next week!

It may be low resolution at the moment, but so were the very first digital cameras - 1mp was a huge milestone! All good things come to those who wait. :)
