if lytro is this company:https://www.fbo.gov/?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=e7809379de123cfb7bc5b9419da7fa50&tab=core&_cview=1they do not need you to buy something form them, because the government already did it for you....but i have to admit they're innovative...
as always, the lord of the lights...
i have pictures with dancers and bands taken with nex5n and a manual voightlander at 3200 ISO in dark clubs(they're ok) and i have pics of my wife moving taken with d800 (they're blurry). So, what ?!the main problem of mirrorless (especially with big sensors) was focusing on moving subjects so it's normally for the leader of the pack to combat this.there are a lot of great camera in the wild today, buy consciously whats best for you , but do not f-up your gear just because the hype.
hotdog321: I genuinely wonder why there is such an emotional attachment to mirrorless cameras, and the Sony a7RII in particular. The a7RII appears superb on paper and in leisurely situations, but clearly isn't "there" yet for action and for most pro usage. The overheated rhetoric is more akin to a religion or favored sports team than a reasoned discussion.
Folks, trust me. If and when mirrorless cameras surpass DSLR bodies for pro still photographers, we will be the first to dump the old Rube Goldberg DSLR and grab a mirrorless body.
yep, it doesn't matter why, it matters they everybody think that way, making it easy for the seller to concentrate the message.
if they would just made it 18-30mm ! i would buy it in no time...
jubilatu: may the God bless you with the gift of filming your entire life with mirrorless "universal mount" cameras and just fast telephoto lenses ! both provided by your sponsor.dixit.
c'mon guys, it was a chearing , not a swearing:1. fast tele's are expensive, so it's a good thing having them2.mirrorless is universal, so you could have whatever mount is more convenient (for example if you are shooting F1 in singapore at night, you could change a canon 200-400 with a nikkor 600 f/4, on the same A7s body)3. having a sponsor might be nice ( i do not know, cause i have not one, but i'd like to have somebody paying me for saying things). also having a sponsor assumes that you are famous in your field, so that is also a good thing.

Joriarty: The article should read 41 megaray sensor, not MP, correct?
nice touch !unfortunately, those "megarays" were intended to "bring litro to the masses" and create general awareness regarding the new company.Now that this was done, NASA could pump money in wathever BS litro is bringing to the market. watch up Hubble, you are going to be replaced with megarays' king !too bad for apple that misses this opportunity. iphone6 as the official camera of the international space station !
HI, B&W 's are allowed ? thanks.
Dougbm_2: Maybe the photographer doesn't know that you can rotate the camera and take a portrait shot! Just saying!
Actually I don't understand why photographers go to so much trouble with multiple shots unless they plan to print extra large. Also the reflection in the water seems to not actually reflect the night sky.
Because the photo is not for his facebook page. Just thinking...
CameraLabTester: The company should put out a CONTEST with great prizes with the theme:
Best 5 uses of the Lytro Camera:18.104.22.168.5.
May be they will implement a vibrate function. then you will have the 6. reason
mpgxsvcd: This was the answer to the question that nobody asked. It was a great product without a real purpose.
Indeed, just the part with "without a real purpose" seems to be truth.
mpgxsvcd: Hasselbad thinks this was a bad idea.
Maybe they will soon come up with a Lunar-lytro at 5000$.
just another BS marketing. Any modern smartphone (HTC one 4Mpx included) is better as a camera.
excellent perspective !
that is a nice one...
nice pic ! the girls looks so...unhappy, even bitter i might say. So contrasting with the guys relaxation...
outstanding. thank you.
