Lytro Light Field Camera Review @ DPReview

Wed February 29, 2012

Lytro Light Field

Lytro Light Field

As a ‘don’t worry about focus’ point-and-shoot, the Lytro isn’t terribly successful.

The Lytro Light Field camera was supposed to be a “game changer” in photography, promising a camera where the photographer does not have to worry about focusing because the camera’s claim to fame is that it focuses almost everywhere in one shot. The photographer can change the focus point after the fact anytime and as many times he or she wants. Think about it: no more blurred shots!

The reality is not quite as sharply defined. DPreview has published their review of the Lytro Light Field Camera — and give it their thumbs down as a consumer camera.

This does not mean the Lytro Light Field camera is not a fantastic tool in the right hands and for the right purpose, just not a point-and-shoot everyday camera. We have no doubt that the Lytro Light Field will gain many dedicated followers and we encourage you to give it a try.

You can read the Lytro Light Field Camera Review @ DPReview.

Editor’s note: As always, we recommend you get a second opinion. AllThingsD thought the Lytro was pretty easy to use after some getting used to. Their pictures prove it.

Bear71 Documentary Mixes Video, Infographics, Interactivity

Wed February 29, 2012

Bear 71 from National Film Board of Canada on Vimeo.

Is this a way to treat a bear? Bear71 to be exact, the tag given to this unwitting bear who is featured in this National Film Board of Canada documentary, a mixture of videos, infographics and interactivity. All told in the first person from the viewpoint of the bear. It features 1 million photos captured with motion-detection cameras in the wild. Pretty interesting.

How Kodak Succumbed to the Digital Age @ Spiegel

Sat February 25, 2012

The Jan. 30, 2012 issue of DER SPIEGEL magazine has an interesting article titled “How Kodak Succumbed to the Digital Age.” As expected, it tells the story of how the company that gave us the KODAK film (“The most important moments of the 20th century were captured on Kodak film“) went “From Small to Huge to Nothing.” The article is now reprinted online on Spiegel and tells a fascinating story seen from the eyes of Robert Shanebrook who worked at Kodak for 35 years. The author has a unique perspective on the rise and fall of Kodak:

Indeed, the story of Kodak is not a simple parable of rise and fall. Instead, it is a complex tale with an ending that is more comforting than one would initially expect.

This misplaced optimism has to do with the bankruptcy of Kodak and its reinvention into a company that is all about… printers — in the hope that the billions of digital pictures will get printed on paper.

Ummm… I think not.
