[EXTREME TECH]Pelican Imaging promises freedom from focusing

Pelican turns the traditional plenoptic design on its head, in what in hindsight seems like a straightforward and simple to manufacture approach. It divides its imager up into an array of “mini cameras” — typically only a few in each dimension. Each tiny imager only records a single color. It is probably no accident that this design harkens back to the original camera array work at Stanford, since Pelican advisor Marc Levoy was one of the guiding lights of that effort.

"Freedom from focusing" when one of the objectives of photography is to get the right thing in just the right amount of focus.
Oh, we're talking toys and cellphones.. who cares. smile.gif
