While I won't say that this isn't going to happen eventually, it makes me wonder when we are going to decide when technology has gone to far? What is the pinnacle of technology ? When can we say it is good enough? From a company's perspective the answer to those question's is never and they will always make you or your camera feel inadequate. Until they can fabricate an eyeball, I will feel like I have a talent that you can't buy.

I can't imagine the average grandma or soccer parent wanted to sift through (literally) 10000 shots of junior's game looking for 3-4 frames to share.

And it has probably been said, but "everything always in focus" sounds like some boring shots.

It was probably good enough in about 1965, when most cameras could shoot color and had exposure meters.

Are there any engineers in the house who can explain how this concept camera can dial in focal length and selective focus AFTER the shot is taken.. It seems physically impossible. A computer can't focus light, only lenses can. I think this camera is a high resolution pin hole camera, nothing more.

Heres the science behind it. Turns out to be an old idea.

As someone else stated, its a point and shoot, not a camera for a real photographer. and above all that, its something that is clearly just a dream without anything really backing it up.

^this for a couple of decades, and then some

I don't see much hanging on walls taken on Micky Mouse cameras, and I don't see much with that to change this

Well, even the average grandma or soccer parent knows how to use the fast forward control. All they will have to know is to get in the 'ballpark' of a good photo; a "pro" will either be spending more time looking at various similar images or sticking to a more traditional form of shooting.

Since Lytro (Plenoptic / Light Field Camera) has been mentioned, I didn't think that was what's being mentioned here (though I noticed some of the words seemed to suggest it).

I can't see this concept taking off. Not in the sense of video cameras, that we can just freeze an image of...for still photos.

Then again, who would have thought camera phones would have taken off? So what do I know?

A camera that lets you focus and zoom after the shot, adjust exposue, control depth of field, white balance, and shutter speed all after you snap the shutter. A camera with 10-5000 Zoom lens and unlimited flash sync speed and 60 frame per sec, and no need for ND filters or depth of field preview, and no fussing with HFD bracketing is where were headed in 20 years. The 5D Mark ii will be a museum piece like the film camera is today.

The ultimate spray and pray technology. 30 frames per second, shoot 10 minutes of video and even a monkey could get a couple of keepers.

The only wrinkle is to PICK those keeper out of thousands crappy ones. You'll need a software to do that ;) (no-no don't talk to me about "taste" and "artist vision" it won't be needed with advanced enough technology :lol:)

I've got news for everyone - a lot of this technology already exists. My Canon video cam can do the same thing now (not 5000 mm zoom). If I shoot a video, I can review the frames and simply take a picture to convert that frame into an 8mp still. The photo quality is not nearly as good as an SLR and lacks any significant depth of focus control but has its uses. It's a nice tool to capture photos you wouldn't have - especially for kids where you wish you had snapped that laugh or that funny face but you were otherwise busy videoing.
