So... whats the sensor size and resolution? Technical details seem pretty sketchy.
It's nowhere near sharp enough to be anything other than a toy at the moment.
love the look and concept, but at $400 for the cheapest model, they won't be able to compete with phone cameras, a for a bit more money you can get an entry dslr with way more control.
Unless they drop the price to $150 for the cheapest model, I don't they will be in business for long. You can already do the focusing feature for software, it's only a matter of months for it to be implemented through apps on droid and iphones.
The video from the iPhone 4 camera destroys anything I can take with my Canon t1i. And the sound on the iphone does not distort if you are shooting concerts, it's crazy. Like if they have some sort of dynamic compression software during the recording process..
They should sell their software to phones and they will make more money
I like it but at 400 dollars this is complicated to justify at least to me tho I reckon I'm not a photography freak. I do enjoy taking random pics with the iPhone 4.
Why do people expect everything to be so cheap? It's new tech by a small startup...
That said, the photos I think are natively only 1080pixels width/height. And look a little soft and crappy. Definitely more of a toy, like a polaroid cam, for now at least.
I guess I was just giving a point for the company to survive in a market that is over saturated with so many options, it's no secret than the point and shoot cameras are being replaced by smartphones.
So, if you want to not only exist but be competitive on a market like that, you can't be charging the same amount of money of an entry level DSLR. I mean, you can charge what you want, but for how long?
Look at the GoPro cameras, they are in the "toy" category but they are offering amazing quality at a competitive price, and they are blowing up.
That's why people expect for something like this to be cheap, actually, let me correct that.
That's why people expect for something like this to be at a COMPETITIVE price. :)
depth of field APP is already out for $0.99
Well, obviously Miguex is not the intended demographic.
I think it's pretty cool tech. I remember seeing the beginnings of this camera when the CEO was doing research out at Stanford in like '05-'06, and it was pretty amazing at the time (and still is).
Focus after the fact, not through some bullshit photoshop actions. Real selective focus from inches to infinity, after your photo is taken.
$400 seems reasonable for what it does, which is something that completely sets itself apart in the industry. New tech is expensive. Remember the price point of the original iPod
Seems like a brilliant invention that will be further developed for military, security, and law enforcement use.
Once they start making money, they should sell a "consumer" version for much less.
8gb ... 350 pictures.
22mb an image?! and at THAT size?!
amazing technology though, been waiting for this to be released in a camera. no doubt in years to come this will be the norm in standard cameras.
