Oleg Ivanovskiy: Looks scary, like some sick radioactive mutant.

And the designer probably still thinks it looks awesome. ROFL

HeyItsJoel: That camera looks like it metastasized.

It's a box hit by 16 bullets! Hard to think of a more ugly camera. XD

dtibi: Great ideea but sadly it looks freaking awkward. The lens array looks chaotic. Kind of unconfortable. It's like some alien with a lot of eyes. It's good to think out of the box, but look at Lytro. Their oversized lipstick did not sell well.

And you don't even realize why....ROFL...I don't care if you used 16 or 160 or 1600...or just 1...that is frankly not my problem. That's for engineer. I am a photographer so I just wanna take nice pictures. And the camera used need to look good as well. Simple as that. Ok this discussion keeps on and on and I won't reply any more.

Just change the Inside. Again again again...you keep repeating yourself with same comments. I DONT NEED YOUR APPROVAL NOR YOUR EDUCATION to have common sense: this16 hole camera is so damn ugly! If one truly wanted (or capable) to invent something, make it at least NOT UGLY. Come on ! Be critical to yourself otherwise how can great products be made? Go read others comments. If you can't accept the reality that this is a total failure from a design point of view, then fine. One day a more mature product will come out and perhaps people may remember this current 16 hole camera as by its disasterous look.

Can't improvements be made to this camera? Have you tried 26, or maybe 36 or a camera full of "eyes"? It may look better? think outside the box man, if 16 made it look ugly why not come up with something else? Why not make extra holes to make up the poor alignment of lenses. I just wanna say one more time, the current design is very bad.

Yeah Lytro was a new thing. Sometimes you don't even need to play with it to know it sucks. You called that design pretty ? Really? It's looks like a mess to me. One could be called "interesting" at best. Now you are saying it a pretty because it has 16 cheap lenses so it's the best design possible? Right then go back to the drawing board and reengineer the camera. This one looks yucky and photo looks yucky...as a photographer I want better than that. Compactness? I have the beautiful and functional iPhone.

By defending wouldn't make it look any better. Take another look, a box hit by many bullets would be the best way to describe it. It's quite amazing how it's making its way to become a product. lol

1. Product design: esthetically not attractive.
2. It's a traditional product - maybe some clear ideas but based on immature techbology
3. And because of 2 it cannot do the day to day task for professional use.
I am entitled to my views and you to yours. Don't have to force me to like it. Are we clear?

Let's talk after the camera actually gets used in the field for sports, portrait, studio, long exposure photography...as a pro photographer reliability is the most important thing.

I don't really care. Leave it to the engineer. But honestly, for now quite ugly and you can immediately tell a better replacement version will come out soonish to replace this "beta". It's a new and young product I get it, I was just expressing my personal views on the product design.

As for the future of photography in digital age, I doubt we even need a lens for that matter. ; )

Product design counts. And fails miserably..

Ouch! The design of this camera reminded me of the iPhone 10 joke...it's way too ugly to be considered lol.

Bobbert1: Apple has killed the iMac with is dumbing down to interact with the iPad and iPhone from what I saw on the 21.5 inch you can't even change you own memory anymore and from what I've seen in Seirra you loose control of somethings in disc utility. The iMac pro is not inovation it's down grading it. There just taking things away so you have to spend more money, That's not technology that's just greed. They need a new CEO with some vision.

Perhaps they really need a real CEO with a real vision.

jwd8002: No SD card, no USB and for photographers a totally rubbish Photos software. I agree that they have lost the plot. I was at the Apple store today looking at the latest Pro and when I complained to the pretty young thing about the lack of USB etc she said "but that's the way of the future". Maybe, but we are now in the present where we need those "old fashioned" ports. On photo software I am persevering with Aperture but will probably move onto Lightroom. One really frustrating thing is that when one loads photos onto a Mac it insists on using Photos, and it's impossible to delete that stupid software. Lift your game pls Apple!!!!

Use Capture One. Wayyyy better than anything else.

D200_4me: I love my iPhone, but I'm never buying a Mac computer. There's no reason to. They're more expensive and my PC is very fast and has all the ports, etc that I want/need...and there's no end to the software that's available for it.

Oddly, I would rather wait for an update from apple than to buy a pc. Just love the Mac OS...

Holscen: I'd like to shoot a series of portraits of subjects sitting on chairs looking bored & depressed. I'd like to use one light. I'm after a dull, flat oppressive feel and a setup that only takes 5 minutes. Will this guide help?

It's already been done and the photographer won some serious hasselblad awards lol

Bouvetoya: These are absolutely entrancing.

One suggestion, DPreview - maybe put the images of Almerisa in date order, to better show the progression that I assume the photographer is intending to document.

Brilliant observation! It would have made way more sense to view the photos in proper sequence. Now that looks interesting.

YA9Productions: Apple make workers in Thailand jump from the factory roof to death after non stop shifts and improper salary.
they offer companies a deal they can't refuse to produce the parts and the processor and they have to say yest to whatever apple offers them otherwise they will lose a huge production line but the workers are the ones who pays in their life!
the most aggressive and destructive corporation in america

Mared? You sound like you are in a senior management in a tech firm or something? Did your arrogance put you up there?
