Thanks for the link, that looks very interesting. I wonder how long before a movie version comes along?

It looks interesting, but is there a single frakking picture in there that doesn't suffer from HEAVY DOF? I like to use DOF as an effect, so force the eye to focus on a particular element in the image. But sometimes you just want a picture without the illusion of depth, where everything is in focus...

It wouldn't be a very good demo of selective focus if there wasn't anything out of focus now would it :foreheads

The idea is that the camera captures everything so I can't see a reason why you can't have a photo with the whole scene in focus if you wanted to. If, for some bizarre reason, it isn't possible you could always do the current trick of taken several images with varying focus and blending them all together.

That is some serious rocket science in that thing.
