Franka T.L.: am not sure after the like of RX100, or even simply the older XZ series, not to mention their own M4/3 or any of the large sensor mirrorless / compacts that I can tolerate the limited performance the 1/2.3" sensor impose.
I would rather accept the burden of a less compact setup for the long term benefit of it bringing back better captures
I AM SATISFIED WITH IT. I BOUGHT IT FOR TRAVEL, ZOOM AND STABILITY AND HAS WORKED FINE EVEN AT 96X, SURPRISINGLY.EVEN SURPRISED AT DECENT MACRO. PICS FINE. FOR ITS PRICE ITS A GOOD PURCHASE. I HAVE OTHER CAMERAS AND EACH SERVERS A DIFFERENT PURPOSE. I HAD THE ORIG. PEN HALF FRAME.
Elaka Farmor: The water-color-effect even at iso 125 is not pretty…..sadly
This is probably the first series of pictures available. It will be interesting to see what another series of pictures will look like taken by a different person, at a different location and of course, a different production camera.
It appears the camera is limited to web and email usage. There are no provisions or mention of printing, resizing and the use of other editing equipment such as Adobe, iPhoto, Aperture, LR, etc. There is no comment on the batteries life time or what happens when it is wears out. It also appears that you must have access to Lytro.com for its sharpening or focusing to work and that appears to be a variable since it can be changed. It appears that the adjustment of the Aperture on a regular camera may have similar results which can also be duplicated in the newer editing equipment. Also, some of the new cameras models have 3D capability so a comparison could be interesting.
