    Ridiculously cool technology, but 1080 square just isn't enough. That, and £400! Might make a cool dashcam if they could make a video version though.

    That's the whole point of a light field camera though - swapping image resolution for ability to capture 'in 3D'. Limited uses, but could be very useful in film making, where a scene needs to show really close up things AND things in the background, potentially with a nice smooth fade in between.

    Fit it into a DSLR as an optional mode and we'll talk, otherwise it's £400 for a toy.

    That!

    These could make some of the best security cameras going if the technology can be adapted from stills to video.

    It's not a "mode" - it's a whole different technology for image capture. The entire camera is built differently, so you couldn't have it as some sort of user selectable "mode".
