Rowland Scherman: You've written a lot about the A6000, but not whether it's possible to sync it to a studio strobe. Is it possible?

SDPharm: > When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X..

Wait, isn't Yosemite going to be released this fall?

Yosemite and Photos isn't the same....

RussellInCincinnati: Can't see any point (ha) to a display with more than 300 dots per inch resolution that also displays full colors per pixel (allowing for anti-aliasing). Am hoping the industry hews to increasing dynamic range and color accuracy and power consumption and stability over time and price and weight and thin-ness (transparency and flexibility?) and especially viewing angle, rather than endlessly chasing smaller-than-300-dpi pixels.

Yes, I also wish that development of new technologies would just stop for a few years. Enough already. No one wants these new gadgets or features;-)

Iron Mike: a 15 in display with 2880x1800 resolution will make stuff so small it will be very hard to see, including text. The 1080 resolution on my 16 in laptop is bad enough, this will only be worse...

Yes, no one will be able to read anything without the included iMagnifier. Just like with the New iPad...

So the conclusion is that this is a dead in the water product...or?

Deeso: P&S manufacturers better be upgrading to 1 inch sensors or more or they will be dead for good in a couple years time frame. Just like portable media players, videocameras and PDA's got engulfed by smartphones. Perhaps pure cameras will always have the edge, but phones are quickly getting "good enough" for everything.

1 inch sensor? That won't be a P&S anymore. The physics of that big sensor and the lens it needs makes it way to be to be a P&S

Danlo: CRAZY.. this is actually even better then the Fuji Xpro1..

I doubt it. Especially with the Leica adapter (saw that one in a post somewhere today) and all those nice lenses you can then use on the Fuji...

JackM: Hope this sensor ends up in the next S100.

Then the next S100 will look like...G1 X. If the sensor grows the lens grows and thus the camera...

itchhh: How did Ansel Adams survive w/o the newest wiz bang camera?? The D4 is a nice camera no doubt but $6 is crazy for 98% of us.

The camera isn't target for 98% of you;-)

CharlesGoodwin: It's not that everything is in focus, it's that the selective focus can be edited. Of course, isn't that what you can do with Photoshop's lens blur filter and a reasonably sharp photo (say a 28 to 35 mm shot @ f4 or f5.6)? Point is, with a reasonably wide angle lens stopped down a bit, everything is in reasonable focus and it's not too hard to blur is.... This seems more like a gimmick than an innovation. Now, is this could be adapted to generate something where everything in a snap shot really is in sharp focus, that would be remarkable.

Yep, a Stanford researcher missed that little fact...in fact, Stanford missed it. Give them a call;-)
