Cool... I'd like to see it in action before I make any judgement on it but the ability to focus the images after a picture has been taken sounds pretty interesting.

I don't like that bit about the first camera owners having free storage with Lytro.com. That tells me that this could be an expensive mistake to get. Anyway I'd rather have just the basic DSLR camera & muck around with the photos normally. After a while I will be a little more interested in this new technology, but not right now though.
Film still reigns supreme!!!!!!!! just get it right the first time and no need to muck around with it afterwards.

Gawd! Your kidding, right?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Very interesting... I would be curious to see this type of sensor in a DSLR that would take two photos .RAW format and the format that this camera uses.

Notice that it doesn't say anywhere what the Mega-Pixel rating is?
I have read about this technology before, and I think it was here on HotHardware a few months ago.
You can GO HERE to see the pictures and click on separate areas and see them come into focus. It's cool.
Yeah! I'd have to agree with gazd1 and wait for a while to see how this tech runs.
Very true about the megapixels :)
Thanks for the link it was very interesting to be able to play with the focus and zoom.
Awesomely dumb... it's like listening to a mix of a song that everything is at the same level, or looking at a painting that's all the same color until you decide to unpaint, remix or FOCUS it. This is just another step into mediocrity. Maybe it should actually lead you to where a great photo opportunity is and compose the shot as well. DUMB IDEA except maybe for remote cams but the resolution just isn't there. Can anyone say FAD?
It's alot like sitting in a movie theater with an image that the projectionist forgot to focus. ugh..... technology is awesome in all it's flaws. This is just another step in removing humanity from the creative process.
If I bought into this,...and I think it's too damn expensive,...It would never ~replace~ my Nikon Digital and all of my lenses and filters.
But if it wasn't so expensive, I would consider it for hiking when you can't tolerate a lot of weight. Yes, I have a Cannon 14MP point and shoot that goes already.
