Might as well tell you the nuclear physics joke I saw posted recently:


....and the bartender says: We don't serve neutrinos here.




A neutrino walked into a bar and ordered a drink.

I sure wish I knew what those Raytrix cameras cost.

Lytro is selling theirs as a low price but I don't know if the camera is
good enough to do 11" x 14" (approx) prints

The 7mp Raytix looks promising but I bet it's expensive

Why don't you ask them? I happened to meet these guys, and they are
very responsive. They said they built so many of them that they now
have more than they need, and they decided to sell some of them...

No, still absolutely no connection with them, they are just a few
kilometers from here. Bright folks...

Cheers,
U.

The Raytrix web site seems to run very slowly, but I found this link
to a BBC News item which provides some useful background to the
technology:

and I now have one

the Raytrix R-29 was quoted at approx 30,000 Euros or approx $40k

just a guess, but it's probably a better camera the the $400 Lytro

A great explanation

but again...I am not going to buy one until I know what a medium-sized
print looks like.


Of course at the low price of $400 there is not a *huge* gamble
