Lan: Fascinating! I wonder what his contemporary setup would be if he were still alive today?

He would microwave the SD cards.

Why do Apple want to get involved in this ? It's legal mess. Apple need to make the phone, not to enforce the law.

PropaPH: I'm a media professional and spend all day looking at images on a computer, in a company of more than 500 similar workers. The overwhelming trend in software interfaces in the last few years has been towards neutral-to-dark backgrounds to help reduce eye strain for people who work long hours constantly staring at a monitor. Sites that use large areas of white background are visually uncomfortable and seem amateurish to me for that reason.

white on dark grey background or black on light grey background works for me. White hurts my eye, I usually turn down my monitor brightness to 20% to read white background pages.

BigOne: Questions from an amateur.

1. 755 MP x 300fps = 226,500 MP = FIVE GIGABYTES PER SECOND. How the hell do you record this? Is there even a memory device capable of writing at such speed?

2. For a regular consumer focusing may be a problem. For professional cameramen... have you ever seen an errorneously out-of-focus shot in any movie? Is it really such a huge advantage for them?

3. Philosophical. When you shoot a picture or a film scene, there is certain finality in the "Cut!" command. You shot it, it's final. It gives the image certain character. You can easily recognize Godard or von Trier by seeing a simple pan. But with all those post-production abilities where you can change anything, won't they make movies plasticky and characterless?

4. Even more philosophical. It's not the technology that made cinema the art we love and cherish. It's WHAT they shoot not HOW. And with the crap that goes on screens these days, I doubt this technology will make it any better.

Intel and Micron developed New 3D XPointâ„¢ technology that brings non-volatile memory speeds up to 1,000 times faster than NAND. 5GB per second is easy.

Dan Tong: It's amazing how with hindsight, it's become clear that Lytro should have focused on exactly this part of the industry, rather than the consumer market.

How interesting to have witnessed, from a distance, the emergence of this amazing technology, from Ph. D. dissertation to a potentially huge shift in the way movies will be made in the near future.

There is little doubt in my mind that if not Lytro, then some other company will ultimately re-make film making, Changing both the technology and the artistry because choice and freedom inspires such things.

Congratulations to Lytro !

Dan

Put it a on microscope. I discussed that with my coworker for long time. They never come up with anything.

30X FL, 40X FL, or 50X FL. The sad truth, it is only optimized to one distance

My advice is "don't use a bagel as calibration target"

Thorgrem: And where are the new Sony E-mount APS-C lenses to go with this (nice) camera?Or do you really have to spend Master G money on a standard 2.8 zoom which is heavy and big?

If you can make good money out of photography, do you really care cameras or lens cost a bit more ?

noflashplease: Why did Sony even bother? The A6300 still doesn't offer 14-bit RAW files? Looking at the A6300, you have to wonder if Sony is eventually going to discontinue the APS-C E-mount bodies? The future, and the profits, are with the full frame A7 line.

who knows, APS-C E-mount will stay. More APS-C E-mount users than FF. I think it will stay

If you want to make money, you have to go FF. I am happy with APS-C kit zoom. It's good enough for most of things I do as I don't blow up my landscape photo 4-5 feet big. 24M is over kill for me anyway. I have 35mm and 50mm APS-C prime that I can have a bit DOF control.

bluevellet: sony: best selling mirrorless camera of all time... so let's not support it with any kind of new accessories and lens and other stuff that makes an interchangeable lens camera... an interchangeable lens camera. Still want to use something else than the kit zoom? Here, have some overpriced, oversized FF lenses.

No complains. I like my 35mm 1.8 and 50mm 1.8 with my A6000. Both are good lens.

Cloudy, snowing. It would be nice they take some pictures on a sunny day

CameraLabTester: This lens is has a great potential to be a best seller.

The overpriced equivalents of Sony, Olympus, and Panasonic Lumix cameras are shivering in fear, in their Geta sandals, just looking at the snowy samples of your photos.

.

Pana-Leica 25mm f1.4 is actually very good lens. I won't say it is overpriced.

Sony 35mm f1.8 OSS is not overpriced
