Re: A young man commercializing his PhD research...

By turning his research efforts into a practical product within a short time is quite an achievement. For that I salute him.

The question I have is that it has an optical lens like any other camera and so it would have a focusing point (may be set to infinity) when taking a photo. So this "original" photo taken must be focused at certain point. Would then this "original" photo of quality better than those "re-focuing" ones (most probably generated by software)? How big would the difference in quality be?
