This morning we are hearing rumors that Nokia is planning on investing in Pelican Imaging, the firm behind the shoot now, focus later Lytro-style cameras.

 

 

The technology uses an array of small 'plenoptic' cameras in a single module to take images with multiple focal points and thus allows the photographer to adjust the images focus point at a later time. This frees up the user to focus more on what is around them and less time worrying about getting the perfect point of focus at the time of shooting.

Nokia is probably the number one leading innovator in smartphone camera technology, and has brought to market other revolutionary camera tech to the smartphone scene in the past. Most recently the firm managed to cram a 41 megapixel camera into its PureView 808 smartphone, and is rumored to be working on stuffing a similar camera into its next-generation Lumia smartphone.
