This was new to me. A Light Field Camera.
I think this is pretty cool. A completely different type of camera that gathers all the light from different directions in a scene and saves it. Then later you can determine what you want in focus, what colors, contrast, etc. There is actually one coming on the market. It uses a completely different type of sensor, optics, and software than a regular camera.
So to get an idea, see the link. Select a picture from their list. Now click on different parts of the picture to get them in focus. Some of them are pretty amazing.
They say that they have software that will also bring everything in focus, if that is what you want. Also contrast, color balance, etc. This could come in handy. Supposed to be out later this year. I bet it will be a chunk of change though.
