It's never been a more exciting time to be a photographer than it is right now. A bold statement? Perhaps, but if you look at the technology now available to us and the platforms by which we can share them, it's hard to disagree. This week saw the UK launch of the amazing Lytro 'light field' camera, and equally exciting to us was the launch of our sister title, Photography Week, on iPhone. But even as times change, the core remains - and this week's bulletin celebrates both old and new.
