Image Contributor: Eli Blevis

Genre: Understanding what a new technology can do by taking stock of what can be done better, less well, or not at all using existing technology.


The images here were created using present day digital camera and lens technologies. The newly practical emergence of plenoptic cameras allows focus to be chosen after a picture has been taken, rather than before. The limiting factor on this new technology is resolution when compared to existing technologies.
