    Interesting... A lot like a Lytro. I wonder if they are focus bracketing to get all the different focus points?

    no GM5 support?

    edit: I see, it's tied to the 4k capture mode

    Yes.

    It shoots 4K at 30 fps for 1.6 seconds to get 50 frames.

    So the post-focus images are only 8MP JPEGs, like 4K photo, and they will have subject movement within them due to the length of the exposure. But it still essentially guarantees that you will get a frame in focus, so that's something.

    I can see using this in Photoshop for macro work (both insects and small objects) for focus stacking since you can save multiple images. Might not be useful for all but very useful for some IMHO. And yes I do have the android stacking app.

    I work at Roberts camera I Indianapolis. The Panasonic America's president demonstrated this in store last week. Thus is one of the reasons I finally picked up the g7, since I knew it was coming. Pretty cool feature to have

    I wish it used raw files and not jpeg.
