    In other news from the Otter-man empire, I have a Lytro to play with!
    It is only on loan from a friend. He won it as a prize and let me
    borrow it, since he doesn't really use it.

    Weird is not a strong enough word for this little box thing with no
    knobs or dials. Where's my joystick??? It is about the size and shape
    of a sleeve of golf balls. It looks like it could be a radar detector.
    A camera is the last thing you'd think of.

    Alas, it really is just a toy. Glad it didn't cost me anything. Well,
    I was never going to buy one, anyway. Could be more interesting in a
    few years, though. Not sure if Lytro will survive to pursue the
    technology, but if they managed to sell the patents to the right camera
    company...

    Yeah, I bought one when they first came out...enjoyed fooling with it.

    I liked it actually but passed it on to my daughter.

    You took some interesting pictures with it! Just goes to show it is
    always more about the photographer than the camera.

    It helps to have weird friends, too.
