Focus After The Fact

Now that is something that I like! Focusing into the picture after you have taken the picture, and it is a tiny device that you can carry around with you to take photographs. I have been curious about this camera for some time now and there are two versions available the 16GB ($499) and the 8GB ($399), I’m interested in the 8GB since the only difference is with the amount of pictures it can take. The camera has many lenses built into it so it can take a lot of light information so it can process the focus after you have taken the picture which is a very cool concept. I’m going to get one to try it out, it literally is point and shoot so I’m going to enjoy trying it out for sure. It has two buttons one is for power and other is to snap pictures, and snapping pictures is instantaneous because it doesn’t have to focus. You need the software to focus the pictures but the downside of that is that the software is only available on the Mac right now but Windows is coming soon. For a photojunkie they will love this device, but its not a replacement for a DSLR, not yet at least but the technology behind is genius, and I bet you can come up with some very interesting photographs with it. You can order it now but it will ship in 2012, I’m looking forward to getting my hands on it.

  1. interesting approach to photography, i like the design.

  2. It is awesome I wonder how it will be incorporated in the years to come!

  3. @id – Agreed!

    @vampire – Lol!

    @Jacqui – Thats what I keep thinking too, what kind of lenses can you come up with based on this process!

  4. The process is in capturing many layers on the scene with focus om different points in each layer. It’s a really fun and simple way of doing something that’s possible with the technology we have in our mobile phones – only it will take hours to capture one image.

    I love the idea and with mobile devices, mobiles and iPads, this is a product that is perfectly timed to hit the market. The test shots on their site are amazing.

    Should be a cool little camera… I’m on their list somewhere.
