The camera you focus AFTER taking the picture
Last updated at 10:30am on 22nd May 2007
Blurry family snaps could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a groundbreaking camera.
Scientists have invented a device that lets photographers refocus unsharp images after they are taken.
The camera has a special lens with ten times the normal depth of field - the distance over which the camera can
keep subjects in focus.
Using software either within the camera or on a computer it is then possible to pull the image back into focus.
The technology may mean photographers will not have to focus at all until after they press the shutter.
