And how about the Acer A500, the only one that has a USB connector directly on the tablet that you can connect ANY USB card reader (e.g. a CF one) to or even a 2.5" external USB hard disk drive...
(in addition to a micro USB slot)

Yes, good idea that produced some great shots, and nice to see no idiotic rules :-)

Gaffman: Lytro's just arrived in my shop today (Aus). I love that someone is trying to bring something genuinely new to the market. In its current form it may not set the photography world on fire but it hardly deserves the pasting it's received from most of you.

Light field imaging has potential. Lytro gives average consumers a chance to experience it. Dont hate... Innovate ;)

Gaffman, it is genuinely innovative in the camera market, but unless they have revised their marketing blurb, so many people reading it thought they would get usable JPGs from the camera.
You don't. Posting a LINK on Facebook to your image hosted on lytro.com is the most likely use.
You can't even send the output by e-mail, just a link.

Maybe the host could list all his unstated rules in a message, it would have saved a lot of time and aggravation...

Wildbegonia: The only entry up to now is in violation of the rules. I believe it has been shot way before the announcement of the challenge?

I'm amazed that 11 people actually voted, although 5 may be 'buddies'...

So many halos... :-(
(around the windscreen, the hand-rail, mountain ridge...)
Some P&P techniques could avoid them.

Steve Parkin: I used to love this site when it first started. Now its a collection area for all the cynics and know it alls in the photography world. Not to say some good folks aren't still out there. HDR - like it or hate it, is its own thing. It amazes me how arrogant people can be. Because somebody doesn't like something, it should be ridiculed and banned for not meeting their standards of what looks good. There's a ton of art out there that I don't like; but ripping people down or condemning entire types or styles because I don't agree with them? Pretty narrow minded. Do what you love your way guys. If something doesn't work for you, move on. There's nothing wrong with other people doing things outside the box. Are we all supposed to shoot the exact same way?

I think it's simply that many "amateurs" get hold of a few basic HDR techniques that reveal detail and go "wow! all that detail, it must be good". Just like so many see a terrible photo of a loved one smiling and think it's brilliant. The important thing is to remain courteous whilst criticising!

Zaax: I would be interested in hearing your opinions of these HDR images. Shot with an X100. Is the effect too strong?

Your HDR is so strong it becomes obvious and unnatural, looking more like a drawing or special effect (in the few I browsed). When you present photos like that, many here will say yuk, that's too much! It can, however, look good in some cases, but usually has to be carefully controlled for each pic (eg I find Lake Leelanau HDR horrendous, but I like Fishtown-1-DSCF5390_HDR). "very unnatural" can look good in some cases.

emmalemmaleemjah: For what it is worth these images were shot over a 3ree to 8ight hour period, capturing 100-200 images, using a 18+ images and brought together in layers with a brush/wand in the same manner as Bob Ross did on his PBS TV show.

Algos and Tone Mapping is the easy button, understanding how an expert works in a darkroom is priceless.

Agreed bmadau, but they do look bad, with a little effort and technique the halos can be processed out, they're part of the unnatural look.

Great idea, but who's going to program it?
How about squeezing a smart-phone running Android into the grip, it would have a head start...

Please Canon, could you do me a version with a viewfinder ?
All the rest I can make do with, but not the lack of a viewfinder :-(
Or how about a G1-X with the EOS-M mount, yeah!
