Lytro Light Field Camera
The recently unveiled Lytro Light Field Camera is a focus-free digital camera that instantly captures the complete light field data with the press of a single button.
Unlike a conventional camera, which captures a single plane of light, the Lytro captures the entire light field, which is all the light travelling in every direction in every point in space.
Utilizing Light Field Sensor technology that can capture up to 11 million light rays, combined with Light Field Engine – internal software that processes every ‘living picture’ – means the user can focus and re-focus on any point of the photo at any time after it has been taken. The ability to focus the shot afterwards means Lytro has no auto-focus function, leading to no shutter delay when taking a photo.
The lightweight extruded-shaped Lytro has an anodized aluminium case with a silicone rubber grip. The camera features an 8x optical zoom lens, a 1.46’’ touchscreen display, and comes in three sizes – 8, 16 and 32GB.
