Apparently this system captures multiple images and allows the photographer to refocus the shot after the shot has been taken. I hadn't really heard of this before, but imagine the possibilities!

Light Field Sensor- No focus needed!?!?

Anyone heard of this stuff... curious if this is low-res only kinda technology or if it finds a home in a 5 or 1-series?

The website is mostly hype. The New York Times describes the product better then the link above. Conceptually it is awesome, but time will tell.

We can all do that, all we need to do is switch the AF switch on the lens to MF, get it really out of focus (depending on your taste), and click the shutter

yeah we can. but can we then pop back the shots into focus on the computer? i certanly cant.

Its a nice little concept but i doubt will go much further due to the costs etc.

just thought id share it


Wow, thought it was just about saving oof shots....not about a computer which recovers them :confused:

Interesting technology - but not for our kind of photography as long as one want high resolution and low noise.
I think we donĀ“t see that in a consumer DSLR next 10 years. But probably it could find a niche in consumer photography (or some kind of video production).

My camera saves ALL shots, those in-focus and those out-of-focus.

I also have a keyboard that has more than the .... key.

I think maybe the OP is talking about Lytro camera, which will allow adjusting focus during raw processing, just as we are able to adjust exposure, WB (and ISO in some cameras) in raw converters now.
It's a pretty neat concept.

Don't worry about being a bit rude - a moderator will let you know if you cross the line :)

BTW - the link doesn't work.
