Saw an article about this last night. These things are amazing. Wouldn't be surprised if this is the future of photography if they can work out any kinks that might exist.

I agree that the gallery on their site was pretty lame, but if you search around the web there are some other photographers using this system with pretty amazing results. It's nitch stuff I think. You still need to pick a specific point of focus for prints, but it's a game changer for on-line stuff.

It's only for Mac at present or I might have picked one up.
