    Lytro

    I just bought Lytro Light Field Camera, 8GB, Graphite
    They are bonus deal of the day on Amazon, 8GB version is selling for $59.99

    Obelix,
    Hadn't heard of it, but after some quick research, sounds like neat technology. Think it could be a good tool for working on composition skills, as it appears to capture light information and then allow you to choose focal point post capture to compose the output. I guess you could then capture a scene and compare how the different focal points would affect the look of the shot. Actually sounds like a pretty cool idea. Have you actually seen or used one of these?

    Never used one, but I was always interested how it works.
    With price that low, I want to try it.

    That deal must be over, because for that price I was going to buy one also I always wondered about these cameras and I'm glad to hear you got one Obelix!

    Impressive looking hardware:

    Maybe it was a Prime thing? Came right up for me and I went and leapt for the thing, same var. as Obelix. Sounds like fun!

    Not sure, perhaps though! I saw pages of them looking under all deals and more....
