CaPi: I wonder if I can find a shop to try the camera body they used to display the lenses on.
No luck so far

falconeyes: @DPReview
Please verify your information. According to https://relonch.com/plan , Relonch wants to charge $1 per processed image (which are selected from the camera roll) and $99 is a one time registration fee. I cannot find a monthly $99 fee in their press release.

I've had a good look through their website but allI can see regarding pricing is a "reservation" fee of $99 with no mention of whether that's a recurring fee or not, and that photos will cost one dollar, but that's rather misleading, as if you took only one photo it would have cost $100, and 100 photos will cost $2 and so on. Aside from my usual gripe about flashy websites that are high on hype and low on information, I think this device (it's not a camera, apparently) isn't for me.

TN Args: Canon vs Epson. Can anyone help me here? Are they just roughly equal competitors like Canon and Nikon with a bit of leap-frogging of top-dog status with each new model? Or is one actually well superior to the other?

I'm assuming the PRO1000 goes head-to-head with the P800?

Maybe DPR could do a review like they used to do...

Regardless of the quality of the lens, what really upsets me is the pricing policy. How can it be the same price in dollars as pounds? That makes the price here in the UK the equivalent of $2400. So you guys across the pond stop moaning about the price please.

More to do with "waterproof" cameras in general rather than these new releases: do any of them float? I'd like to buy one as a present for a relative who sails, and whose children sail too, but a camera that's waterproof and sinks like a stone isn't much use IMHO. Having read previous tests & looked at various manufacturers' websites, it seems odd that this feature isn't available.

Alistair Simpson: Can anyone suggest what applications this camera could be used for? I'm struggling to think of one. And as the Lytro website lacks any kind of detail about the device, even an image of the camera itself, I can't say I'm particularly impressed.

I guess you're right, and it's early days yet. It could develop into useful technology, but the website just doesn't convince me, and my suspicion is that it's a fixed focus lens and fancy software.
