Who is controlling all of those cameras? Is it automatic? Anyway, founds new images to pay with on picpastry.

Also to be used for timelaps shooting.

Being a human who loves interaction with other humans I hate it. ( I also hate supermarket checkout robots and airport checkin robots ), Photographers fighting for the best spot/shot on a small platform , photographers chatting together after the eventin a bar , borrowing each other’s lenses, robots can not do that. But as a photographer looking at the impossible image results I love it again. So the balance is positive and I wish you guys best of luck with all the fallible technology. Look forward to see the most impossible images coming true. Great job !!! Kind Regards: Jacob Roskam in Australia

One thing is still not clear to me: will you use live-view, and thus contrast-detecting autofocus? Or remote manual focus? Or “quick”(mirror down) autofocus?

Will you be using these just for stills, or do you have some video plans as well? Seems it would work just as well for that..
