As I predicted just 5 days ago the new revolutionary REFOCUS (at home) on Panasonic cameras, GX8, G7 & FZ300, is NOT good news for Lytro.

Others, Sony, Canon etc. will try to offer the same REFOCUS capability — assuming that Lytro or Panasonic does not have an enforceable patent on it. It could be that the technology is so ‘obvious’ that it could not be patented.

The last $100 DEAL that was required to get the price down to $399 at Amazon appears to have EXPIRED already. Not sure whether that was a ‘scam’ of sorts. But even $499 isn’t bad. My feeling is that the price will CONTINUE to go down!


Panasonic New Refocus (At Home) Feature, on GX8, G7 & FZ300, Is HUGE.

My Panasonic Lumix FZ1000.

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.

I read (as of last year) a LOT of camera & photography related matter — in printed form and online. Often there are things I want to make note of for future reference. Well these posts will serve that purpose with the added bonus that I can share them with YOU. Hope that makes sense. The notes will be ultra pithy but you should not have any difficulty working out what I am talking about. So here goes, the first post of this genre. Please note that these notes are highly subjective and pertain purely to items that are of RELEVANCE and interest to I.
