WT21: I just don't get it. Out of maybe 300 pictures, I might think "Hmmm... this shot would be better if the other (foreground/background) was in focus" and then the lytro technology would be helpful. But a lot of times, I can just take two pictures on the scene with a different focus point.

Looking at their samples -- who wants a picture where the plants are in focus, but the spider blurred? The spider is the obvious subject. Most of their samples have just one obvious subject. Maybe the surfer and the waves, you could go either way, but with, what, 2 extra seconds, you could have two shots with each in focus.

I'm not saying it won't sell. Gimmicks always sell. I just don't think it will have much commercial once the "oh, wow, cool" factor wears off.

This isn't a camera for a photographer who is trying to create art. This is for the parents that take pictures of their 2 year old and their current camera misses focus all the time. Now they will be able to have their child always in focus no matter what.
