Awesome!

No more lenses!

Sounds like "gear" would become irrelevant, artistry and software would be all.

I sure hope this does make it to the consumer camera market. This could really change things up in a big way. Here is a little MORE (external link) info.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

A camera that captures all light in an instant? so you can later recreate the scene with any FOV desired?

What about bokeh? Computer generated in post?

To be honest I'm at the age where I think twice about buying green bananas so I think I may never see this technology!

Don't be too skeptical, Talley. Phased arrays have been employed for many decades, in applications that we all take for granted today...we now have phased array technology applied at the spectrum of visible light, rather than at either sound (ultrasound diagnostics imagers have done this for about 40 years now routinely) or radio waves (radar).

Phased arrays are a lot more common than people realize. Radar, medical imaging, cellular communications, AM/FM radio, and more. Light is just another wavelength in the spectrum and it just makes sense to apply a well worn technology to the visible spectrum. I'm sort of surprised that this has not been thought of previously.
