After months of speculation and buzz, Lytro finally released it’s first-ever camera. Unlike a conventional camera that captures a single plane of light, the Lytro camera captures the entire light field. This allows you to capture the image and focus after the fact.
You can focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture. Try clicking on the images below to test out the refocus capabilities.
And focusing after the fact, means no auto-focus motor. No auto-focus motor means no shutter delay. So, capture the moment you meant to capture not the one a shutter-delayed camera captured for you.
Since we have yet to get our hands on one ourselves, check out this great, in-depth review by PC Magazine.
Do you think this type of technology will change the way we capture images in the future?
