Nuts. Has ousted Canon, Nikon, Sony… all others. And it was only released on June 24th, 2010

Rather than lose valuable seconds auto- (or manually) focusing before firing the shot, the Lytro captures as much info as it can through clever science stuff (and $50 million in funding) immediately and worries about focus later.

This means the final image you get can be refocused on almost any element in the picture after it has been shot.

Check out the page below for a usable demo of a picture you can refocus on the fly. Try focusing on a player by the net, then on the chain fence.

The cost of the camera (when released) is said to be similar to other consumer-priced cameras.
