I put "disruptive" in quotes because I don't know that we've actually seen a "disruptive" camera in the precise nature of the word.

As the owner of the first 2 RED cameras off the line notes, RED most explicitly does NOT fit the bill. Superlative analysis here: The RED Camera Was Not A Disruptive Innovation.

That said, I'm floored by the Lytro. The idea of being able to set focus and shutter in post, extract keying data from depth maps, etc., strikes me as a staggering amount of science, backed by the most extensive optics innovations in years. It's currently the size of a compact car, to accommodate the giant brain behind the system, so obviously only useful for a handful of applications (I'd think more or less limited to soundstages)....but I can't imagine that the future of filmmaking isn't visible in this.

Of course, as Shawn notes, 4:2:2 10-bit should have been "the future" a long time ago.

ALSO of course, I'm wrong about a lot of things, and the future is consistently at the top of the list of where I miss the mark....but that ain't gonna stop me! LOL
