Weekly News Roundup #4

It’s that time again. Start your Monday with a bit of light reading featuring the latest in cinema lenses from TheCineLens.com. On to the news!
1) Lytro Cinema: The Future of Cinema Acquisition?
https://vimeo.com/161949709 Lytro introduced their newest product, The Lytro Cinema Camera, shortly after stating that they were exiting the consumer market altogether. I'll be posting a more in-depth discussion on this new product soon - but to answer the question "is this the future of cinema?"; ask yourself: How many photographers switched from a DSLR to a Lytro camera when they announced that? Check out Lytro's product page here >
2) Canon Rumors Found Something Interesting
