peterBXL: imagine...
just imagine this being used in photo or video post-production...
imagine your software like photoshop or after effects being able to calculate how far objects are away from your camera...
no need for green keys anymore, just tell after effects to throw away everything that's further away than let's say 3 metres (10 feet for your non-metric people)...
adding objects to your picture or video? just tell photoshop at what distance...

we're just starting to imagine what this could do...

Wouldn't calculating the distance of an object become possible in a two-camera setup?

Michael Long: No thanks. Their "miracle technology" drops resolution down by about a factor of ten. A demo showed an 11MP sensor generating a "huge" 1.2MP final image.

I'm more interested in Apple adding Sony's latest BSI sensor than this toy.

At the current file size of 15MB, it would require flash cards of 3.000Mb/s, and the best SSD cards can already handle this, if I'm correct?

Agreed, this will first be a P&S toy, since resolution is way too low, but in video I can see this getting in professional models quite fast. The needed resolution is way lower than for photography, and the advantages for news reporters or documentary filmers who have to get their shots really fast (forget autofocus for video) are tremendous. I can even see this being used in fiction in cases where manual focus pulling may be too difficult.

Resolution is definitely an issue for the moment, but just remember how many photographers were reluctant about 'digital' not so long ago, and how fast this changed once the resolution (and sensor etc) got better.
This is not a professional tool yet, far from, but it opens a whole new world of possibilities. Love it or hate it, but it's coming, and probably faster than you think.
