+Doug Kaye I was wondering if the price was too big of a jump for your comparison. Only reason I bring up the D750 is b/c it kind of pushed the D600/D610 out of the spot (D600 was about $2,100 when it came out), and the D750 can be be had used for about $1,900.

Schooner of Aha
One of my favorite +Karen Hutton photographs. There's something about the serenity in this shot that calms me. :)

She used to worry that she'd miss the answers she was seeking. Till she asked that they be shown in a way even she could not miss... and began to see them in more obvious ways. She relaxed a little after that.

I hope there is a compelling reason to use it. My toolbox already too full.

Lytro Illum -- All About the Gear 

A year ago +Frederick Van Johnson and I reviewed the original Lytro camera. I didn’t think Lytro was really in the camera business, but rather into technology licensing. But that camera’s successor, the Illum, is much more like what we think of as a camera, albeit with radically new light-field technology.

The $1600 Lytro Illum looks and feels like a small DSLR with the unique ability to shoot now and focus later. It has a fast f/2.0 zoom lens that can effectively give you the depth-of-field of f/16 after post-processing. The camera can produce 3D images in red/cyan format or for 3DTV. It can also generate Ken Burns-style videos and what Lytro calls “Living Pictures” for display online.

Frederick and I try to make sense of one of the most unusual cameras to come along in many decades. #AllAboutTheGear
