    I have no idea if THESE are any good but they're cheap and seem to be a bit like the 'LED video light' you saw on my camera last night. A couple of them might do the job?

    I'm guessing its free til 1st Feb as the last one was - and it doesn't leave watermarks on your images. Very easy to use HDR.
    Unfortunately that isn't compatible with Mac.

    A friend who does a lot of product photography uses several lights something like this
    the light box sits on its own tabel, so he can get all round it
    I will try and have closer look next time I visit his studio

    Just been reading
    http://www.advancedphotographer.co.uk/subscribe.html
    its a remarkable good read
    it includes an explanation of mega whatnot's and why the D3s is such an outstanding camera, despite having half the pixels of its direct competitor
    some useful stuff on HDR and "Big Stoppers"
    and if you have a spare £5000 a review on the Leica M9

    Someone from my camera club has been at it and just bought a nice new Canon macro lens.

    Hmm, are you sure that's not an April fool?

    Needless to say, our friend Ken Rockwell, has somthing to say

    and for once I think he could be right

    Who Cares: Lytro

    Lytro's PR engine is working overtime getting the innocent excited about another technically interesting, but irrelevant, technology.

    Lytro claims to have a camera sensor technology coming that captures not just intensity at each point on the sensor, but also direction. This, and only after using a whole lot of computer power to process all the vector data, lets one choose focus after the fact. It's like a raw file that still hasn't been focused.

    So?

    Compact and cell-phone cameras already get everything in focus, and every other camera focuses just fine, all without needing all the computational overhead of the Lytro system.

    Just like the Foveon sensor whose inventors told us it would change the world, but forgot that it has a basic problem with light sensitivity, the many pitfalls of the Lytro system are yet to be seen. Most likely, it will also have a problem with quantum efficiency (high ISOs) because it is critical for it to resolve direction in addition to simply intensity at each point.

    I see these things all the time. We can forget about it until someone actually has a product to sell, and then we can evaluate it on its own merit. The best and only thing Lytro has to pitch as an advantage is the ability to set focus after the picture is taken, but for that one minor advantage, there are a huge number of yet unknown disadvantages.

    Considering that the people who most need this, casual cell-phone snappers, need it least because those cameras have huge depths-of-field, I wouldn't invest in this.

    The theory is here, but we need real cameras, not hypotheses.
