Lytro have announced a new camera that makes their previous attempts look like primitive, if the hype is to believed.
Watch this video for the claims regarding the unique camera

While Lytro thinks about the sensor in terms of millions of rays and a comparison to megapixels isn't ideal this would equate to roughly 5 megapixels if the "living pictures" were flattened for printing or 2D display.

Hmm

What size files does a 40 Megaray sensor produce?
Ones that need a server and not a memory card to capture them it would appear.

In the dpreview article they were asked about price and they said 'multiple hundreds of thousands of dollars'. So no it will only be used by high end VR people if then.

DVD players, not recorders just players in computer used to cost well in excess of a thousand British pounds. Now ones that can read [and also write] way faster cost about a tenner.
New advanced tech is always pricey.

I wish them luck, but as far as their cameras are concerned they seem to not have interest in professional photographers. There's no support at all in Italy besides aggressive marketing. Their big camera is nifty for about five minutes, after that you just switch to a much better tool. Again, wish them luck, this new direction seems better suited for their technology.
