And it seems promising!

Yes, huge breakthrough made in 1995. And we are still waiting for a commercial consumer product to use one!

i'm not ok with tripod replacement fact. It should work with all day photos but if you want to play with long pauses or moving focuses for example (or any more advanced techniques) you will eventually need one.
In fact it may be a good invention for small cameras but I don't believe that, in its development state, it will help with reflexes cameras.
The focus speed is interesting but with nowadays optics and embedded softwares, we are able to get a very fast focus. The most usefull parts of this techology, despite the price and the ecological footprint, may be the mechanical stability over time.
Let's wait and see how it evolves.

#5 & #6 are both right....The problem is that when taking long exposures there is simply to much room of error ( camera shake ) The DEGREE of shake is the issue i would say, for minor degree such as you would get hand holding a camera with a slow shutter speed this system would 'probably' work, to a point....but if you were taking a shot needing a 10 second exposure (eg) then your not going to be doing it hand matter how good the system is, there's to much movement involved.

I think this idea had been by-passed hasn't it?
