    This is a logical extension of the multi-camera set-up that was used in The Matrix. Funnily enough I was thinking of something like this just in my spare time, on a whim, last week. So it's not exactly revolutionary but it is definitely interesting (and it's not easy to implement, I'm sure). I'm not a desktop photographer so to speak, so I have no interest in this. But somebody very quickly will make a mobile device with 9 cameras on it. The most useful application would be in law enforcement or security, IMO.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.

    From a technical standpoint, pretty interesting.

    not looking forward to the day when an AD or director says "hurry up! Ah well, we'll just light it in post!"

    looking for something like this to improve the aesthetics of photography - not just "because we can"- favorite of the Denmos for me was the sort of spotlight ballyhoo on the teapot.

    I should add that the feeling of this (to me) ranks right up there with 120hz motion smoothing television. ;)

    Love the idea and its probably where things are going. But my god, those examples were very unconvincing.

    yeah, I do think things are headed in this direction (and there'd be nothing wrong with lighting in post if its cheaper and allows for more creative freedom)... However, all those example do is show that it's not anywhere close ready and that to do it now requires tons of additional work/time/effort/money... It actually looks worse than green screening the actor, and making the environment CG (which you could still "light in post"). Cool proof of concept though...

    Was thinking the same. Hardly excited, only more burden in post.

    Sorry for being pessimistic
