Fuji GW690 III

The Fuji GW690 Model III was a large frame, 6x9, range-finder camera, fitted with an aluminum body. The 6x9 cm was the largest medium-format camera that was ever produced. Introduced by Fuji in the 1980s, it came with a 90mm f3.5 lens, which had a built-in leaf shutter, with a top speed of 1/500th of a second. Film transport was mechanically done by a film winding lever on top of the camera.

Lytro Illum Camera

The Illum is a professional camera for light field photography, released by Lytro in July 2014. This new digital camera represents a big step-up in the sensor capability, for it is a 2nd generation, light field camera, fitted with a 40 mega-ray sensor. Lytro takes 3D pictures by recording the direction each light ray is moving. It has a fixed 30-150mm zoom, with an f2 aperture.

Lytro Illum takes "living pictures", in a sense that you can change the focus of the picture once it has been taken just by touching on the screen the part of the scene you want to be in focus. The price in the United States of America is $ 1,599. In my opinion, with this kind of technology, the art and talent of taking photos do not count anymore, since this computerized camera does every thing for you.
