    Yeah, been keeping an eye on this for a while since I saw a couple of threads about it here a while back.

    What I'm imagining is this. Take a photo, then create a time lapse of the subject as you pan through all the different focal planes... so instead of taking many images I can just take the one and watch it as the focus slowly crawls over my subject..

    Imagine a portrait that starts out out of focus and the focus slowly crawls
    over the face (with beautiful f/2.0 bokeh!) until it's all out of focus
    again. Sweet. must. buy.

      I just watched a video on this. Pretty cool. I wonder how the quality is going to be though. They say it is an 8 megapixel camera, but so is my Droid X, and the pictures are not that good. Cant wait to see it in person.
      Canon 60D, Canon 40D, Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, Canon 85 f/1.8, Tamron 70-200 f/2.8, Sigma 50mm 1.4, Rokinon 8mm, Tamron 18-200. Nifty 50 jumped out of truck and broke

          Not at all, it's counted in megarays, that data gets processed down and there's a small number of pixels - your final image will be about half a megapixel. there are multiple zones of pixels that are each capturing different focus zones so to speak - so the megarays to pixel conversion is not really stated.

          The 8 that i've heard floating about is the 8 gigabytes for storage - as there's no card slot or anything. They haven't announced the angle of view yet either, it apparently has a zoom function - but seems like it wont be shipping till 2012 and im not sure but I think i heard it is MAC only at the moment.

            stand corrected. The video I was watching was from a different site. I may have mixed up the storage, zoom and (nonexistent) megapixels. Still a cool little gadget.
