    Wow that's awesome. Was discussing this with a friend recently, my issue with 3D media is that it forces your depth of field so it feels unnatural, impossible to avoid with traditional cameras, but possible with cgi. Of course good luck to the production teams as you can hide a lot out of focus
    Looking forward to the tech that comes out for it.

    Plus forcing the depth of field directs you to focus on what they want you to focus on.

    I'm not sure I fully understand the concept behind this, but never mind

    you can also change depth of field in post processing too, i'm on the waiting list, not sure if I will though.

    Very interesting concept, though I don't think it's a step forward, just a side step. I read elsewhere that you'll only be able to play around with your photos on their site? Would be nice if they included software for it, though they probably will release some if this hits off.

    I'm surprised by the muted responses to this. As a rank amateur photographer who enjoys mucking about with camera settings, I'm very interested by this story - the technology looks awesome, and has some potentially ground-breaking implications if the same tech can be used elsewhere in the science sector. Certainly got my professional side thinking here. Cool stuff.

    incredible. How long will it be for a major camera company to buy this company though?
