    VSCO has a great line of "pro" products for serious photographer

    didn't realize they did more than VSCO Cam until just now. i'm actually confused by what they're offering. seems like a smattering of Lightroom and Photoshop camera profiles and presets?

    i'm not understanding the value here.

      The true value (of the investment) is in the consumer space (iOS, Android app) as VSCO Cam try to get to be more social - basically, the can be the new independent Instagram.

      VSCO got folks that know photography and design, but I have a feeling they need help on cloud, scalability side of things. $40 million can get you that.
