This is HUGE!

This will revolutionize the entire digital camera industry.

It is NOT new. Lytro Illum, as I talked about way back in January 2015, was pushing this concept.

What is it?

The ability to FIX your exact focusing and depth-of-field — and change it if you want (multiple times and different ways) — AFTER a photograph has been taken, using software.

You will never ever again take a picture that is out of focus!

You can get perfect, spot-on focus, with any depth-of-field effect you want, at home — after the pictures is taken.

Yes, it probably will only work with RAW and I, to-date, have resisted using RAW or even any post-processing.

But this HUGE. I am surprised that I am not seeing more coverage of this.

Stay tuned. This could be the end of fuzzy pictures.

Though I keep on telling myself that I have a tryst with destiny with the Fuji X-T2, I have been itching to get a Panasonic G7. Hhhmmm! Yes, the stock market has been VERY GOOD to me.

But, I just wanted to share this with you in case YOU missed it.

The New Canon G5X Could Very Well Be My Next (Companion) Camera

I really thought long and hard about getting a Canon PowerShot G3X as an alternative to my Canon Rebel T3i (which has now become Devanee’s camera). In the end the MAIN REASON I did not get it was the lack of a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF). Yes, I knew I could get an external add-on but that jacked the price beyond what I was willing to pay.

Then as I have amply documented here, I ended up getting a Sony a77 mk II which I had assumed — and maybe even hoped — would be my permanent camera for at least 24 months. Well that was not to be. When I lost 989 images with it, I just could not deal with it. So I ended up getting a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 as a short-term compromise. I LIKE THE FZ1000. It can take some stunning pictures — out of the box. That appeals to me. But given that I got 100% of my money back on the Sony a77 II I kind of have $1,000 in the bank from my camera fund.

I have been toying with getting another camera to augment the Lumix FZ1000 — primarily one that I can carry around, most of the time, without having to lug the FZ1000. PLUS I have been hankering, this week after again reading reviews of Olympus OMD cameras, for a camera with a LOT of control wheels! I do not like fiddling around with menus to set parameters. I want a dedicated ‘Exposure Compensation’ wheel (like I had with the Sony). Another wheel or two I could customize, maybe for flash and focus, would really appeal. The G5X seems to offer me this capability and it has a EVF and a 1″ sensor.

Yes, I am seriously thinking about it. Might not get it this week! I still need to spend some quality time with my FZ1000. Maybe for Christmas. I will keep you posted.

Bottom line, the Canon PowerShot G5X sure is more attractive than the G3X.
