Thread: New camera lets you shoot first and focus later!!!

  1. #1

    Default New camera lets you shoot first and focus later!!!

    Excerpt:

    The company’s technology allows a picture’s focus to be adjusted after it is taken. While viewing a picture taken with a Lytro camera on a computer screen, you can, for example, click to bring people in the foreground into sharp relief, or switch the focus to the mountains behind them.

    Cool function to have.. good for the people that have bad manual focus sense (like myself)

    But.. It'll be really expensive.

    I think somewhere in the paragraph, it mentioned it's for the consumer market. I really hope they mean for the common consumer market and keep it below $700.

    If that is the case, it kinda makes me think that it will take more time to take a photo. Really have to wait for a working set to be demoed.

    I remember this actually came up as a concept and huge prototype about 2 years ago. Let's see if they can get a feasible demo unit out the door.

    I think the companies that are making SLR/DSLRs have spent more than $50million long time ago. (don't quote me on this...)

    Hey, just a thought. Since we have auto bracketing for exposure and WB, wouldn't a mechanical auto bracket focusing be practical while achieving similar to this? It might help for focus stacking for macro wouldn't it?

    You'll need a good tripod. I know some people already do that in the macro circle...
