Lytro Camera revolutionaryNovember 12, 2011 at 12:20 pm | Posted in Design, Hardware, Media, Online services, Technology | Leave a comment
Here’s a new camera that captures all the light as directional vector data. The plane of focus can be adjusted after the fact. The camera takes fast pictures without focus or flash delays. You can adjust or shift depth of field and polish the output later. It has a wide F2 only lens, though apparently exposure can be adjusted on the back. It’s “instant on” with an 8x optical zoom.
On a first peruse, the only lack seems to be that software is currently only available for the Mac. You can post and host the images online though, making it available on most devices. Technology like this could really change photography; more so even than going digital.
Check out the Gallery to get an idea of how you can shift the image post picture.
