Re: Light Field Technology

It's insanely awesome. I can't even wrap my head around the idea yet.

I assume that the files will be stored in some proprietary format to be edited, but will be able to be exported to standard formats for the web.

Re: Light Field Technology

They claim they will be affordable. The first one is going to be a point and shoot. I wonder if they will ever license this to canon/nikon or if they will come out with their own full line of dslr's...

Re: Light Field Technology

I don't know.. idea is hella awesome; but thinking about it terms of amount of memory etc. It's going to be KILLER!

Dad sent me an email about this earlier this morning, talked about it over dinner, wasn't sure exactly how something would work, but their website gave a hint .. as to how I bet it will work.


It's quite simple really.

When shooting a longer exposed shot and are zooming fast, you get pinout streaks.. (where it looks like you're going through a time warp or something)
When you do the same by focusing, you get a halos that appear around objects, but obtain some sharpness.
So clearly, a single shot isn't the answer.

What they showed on their website was a moving glass element image (... an element of glass that focuses.. big deal)


But here is where it starts to make sense.
When you shoot video and rack the focus (near to infinite) you capture in a sense all ranges of depth and focus.

So .. imagine you shoot a high def video VERY fast.. which is possible; Canon can already shoot 60 fields a second with their sensors in the dSLRs. And thinking again about Canons, the autofocus motor on a Canon can rack the focus in shorter than a blink of an eye with EOS.. so it starts to be more plausible.

So.. shoot an insanely fast video; rack the focus.. and compose it.. run it through softwhere.. there you go, focus from all ranges, in "one image"

Remember, this isn't like a jpeg or any standard format they are making here, the software has to compile it all together into some format that allows you to choose a focal point, so it's more than one file technically.. or possibly in this case.. frame.

Re: Light Field Technology

it's def not that simple. I read something about an array of smaller lenses in between the image sensor and the primary lens.

Re: Light Field Technology

I just can't see there being multiple lenses or sensors.. any offset is offset, and you can't correct that.. it's like trying to get the same image from your left eye by using your right eye... but not being able to move its location..
