krassphoto: "it use to take about 70 people to make a lens like that prior to automation, now we need about 6 or 7."
...yet the prices are going up.

Lenses are not phones after all.

mahonj: It is great to see these unsung heroes getting some credit.
30-35 years to become a lens master ... That is incredible.
I wonder do they start after school or college. If they started at 18, they might be 53 before becoming a master - and then retiring at 65 !
It is curious to see such a long training period these days, people expect to do it quicker.

Indeed, and many consumers are asking why not this and why not that. They always think engineering is magical like marketing and sales.

Don't understand what's the point of this article.

photomedium: Canon users take a good look because you'll never see one of those from your favorite No1 camera maker! Only yester-decade tech in those.

as if every one here has a 5K monitor for editing or 4K TV to view it.

Why do they have to call it with a name "book"? can't these manufacturer think of of other names?

ARB1: Apple need to do something because my 7S+ is beginning to look like a dinosaur and since I'm not an Apple fan boy I'll jump ship if they don't get it together. I want widgets and a much much better screen for starters, the 3D camera is great but not deal breaker for me.

The only benefit to Apple right now is resale.

Come on, I am very sure you are not using a Iphone. and stop pretending you are one. Because you could have easily get a cheap Android phone if you wanted to change and not wait for Apple to do something you like.

Light Pilgrim: It is all silly. Why all of a sudden pay 1000+$ for an OLED display? Other companies have ot for a very long time at a competitive price. But yes, Apple needs to ensure sky high margins. 3D camera....well.....hope it is not as useless as 3D touch. In all honesty....people are being turned into zombies...what we all need is a better quality life and it might mean to get rid of an iPhone.

Sorry, I just love iOS ecosystem. Android didn't make it to the standard so their hardware gimmicks didn't matter to me.

3 years for a simple mechanism? They should thank god that the product was not in China's radar.

why not have both? when driving i prefer not to look at the phone. When looking at the phone I prefer not to put my thumb on it. But again I hate the touch screen home button to get back to home screen so please don't remove it.

kristof93: Really hate companies patenting things that already exist.

Really hate whiners who have no basic understanding of how patent is being awarded.

In reply to:

Sarah Terra: Hmm crap like this shouldn't be patentable, all they are doing is calculating the depth of field for a given focal length/ aperture and then adjusting focus and snapping shots at every interval to stack into a single file.

Convenient? Yes. Proprietary? God no.

There is no secret sauce or hardware here, you can achieve the same results with any lens/camera ever made and a calculator. Furthermore any autofocus digital could be programmed to perform the same task with a simple firmware update and zero hardware changes whatsoever.

Its not up to you to say whether its patentable or not. If the patent office awards it, its means its patentable. Got it?

RGBCMYK: Anyone remember the DEP program that was on the Canon EOS 3 and I believe my Canon 1ds had it too. I never met anyone that actually understood how to use it so they dumped it ;-)

I managed to get it working most of the time. And when it works its really a joy to use it.
