Lytro: New Camera Technology

26 Dec

The technology of taking a picture hasn’t theoretically changed in over 100 years until now. Lytro has reinvented the camera with the light field capturing method. The site says, “Lytro camera captures the entire light field, which is all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space.” You will never take a bad picture again (unless your eyes are closed). You never have to focus.

A light field is the amount of light traveling in every direction through every point in space. Conventional cameras cannot record the light field. Lytro camera processes the light so you can always have beautiful pictures.

One consumer testing the camera said, “The shots are about timing and the ability to refocus after the picture is taken. I don’t need to worry about adjusting focus, I could focus just on the timing.”

Thanks to Mike Kimmel for the find.
