Boomanbb: With everyone complaining about anything Adobe, how the heck do they stay in business? Oh, yeah... Best editing tools out there.

Adobe took from RawShooter not basic conversion engine (it was ACR 2003, long before RSP), but interface and workflow. And now it is still here - The only difference in ALR 6.4 interface compared to RawShooter Pro (2006) is that photo stripe placed under photo window, while in RSP it was above main window by default.

They just combined every swich and dial from present DSLRs and compacts. Seems testing wasn't done yet. It is still 'concept', not even 'prototype'.

Q: How do you manage problem A?
A: We don't see A is a problem. But we do not deny that in future we may make products without A problem.
Q: Do you plan to make product B?
A: We don't see any demand in product B. But sometime in future (maybe weeks, maybe decades) when we make product B we'll see huge demand for it.

On article Lytro plans to shed jobs as it shifts focus to video (506 comments in total)

Stop laugh at current photo capabilites of Lytro products. They're full of flaws and noone ever take their still cameras seriously.
Target is virtual reality, so photo and video are just logical steps to establish solid technology basis for virtual reality applications.

I know the secret.

SONY got access to ultimate bending machine (Heil Futurama!).
Their engineers begun with a sensor. But tomorrow SONY can bend anything with NEW ULTIMATE BENDING MACHINE. Curved cars, curved planes, curved pets an finally a curved human. The curved future is coming. Be curved or die.

Aaron801: I know this is a really ignorant question, but I know nothing about this class of cameras... I'm wondering why a camera so bulky and so expensive is only 16mp?

You just not hold this beast in your hands.
Sony NEX are much bulkier and cumbersome in handling all day.
(It is because you holding small camera by fingers and control it by fingertips) So usability of compact sizes is myph.

Sweet. If only I win a lottery...

Seriously I like body size which is smaller than D300 with grip and like lightened buttons.

1. Flat surface very prone to micro-misfocusing and focal plane misalignment.

2. Printed photo colors basically have nothing common with colors of natural objects (by spectral characteristics). Also they degrade quickly and change colors significally just in months.

So this test charts show only how much alcohol test team had in last 3 weeks prior to test, but no way camera sensor.

A scothched dual pensil that writes 2 strokes simultaneosly?
A gun that shoots at you and the enemy?
A cup for tea and coffee same time?

Stacey_K: Just FYI, the D7000 does have configurable auto ISO that works well.

AFAIK Auto-ISO in D7000 don't take account of focal lenght.

In reply to:

SverreE: Thank you for a nice review. I come from D300 and are very happy with my D7100.

The only thing i didn't understand is why you don't want resolution? At the same time you enjoy 1.3 crop and high ISO improvements...

Because I print large formats 42" wide and 6MP D40 was well enough with right lens. Perception of clarity by our eyes have little to do with resolution of camera but mostly with photographer's skill (And lens, and subject, and lighting etc.).

Yet another reason is that I purposely miss IQ aspects and concentrate review on handling and getting the right picture.
