where did my socks go?


A Silicon Valley startup company called Lytro is working on a new digital camera that would let you adjust the focus of an image AFTER you've shot the image.  AFTER!  *socks blown off*

This would be very exciting for amateur photographers but I wonder if professionals would shake their heads at this new technology.  Technology all too often has the unfortunate effect (affect? damn, I can never tell which one) of watering down time-honored skills, techniques, and traditions.  However, one comforting fact is that technology, for now, is still wheeled by a person so application of technology is still but a tool that is subject to the creativity and inspiration of the artist.  

If you want to play around with a simulation of the Lytro technology check it out, here.
