Very cool concept but picture quality is horrible.

angst1558, CNET

  • Summary: Great concept but it is just not ready for prime time. Lytro was very understanding and I was able to return with no problem. Went with Nikon s9300 for a travel cam. Amazing quality in a small design.
  • Pros: Great new technology, High quality construction and good design, Very easy to take pictures
  • Cons: Picture quality is horrible, my daughters play camera takes sharper photo, No flash, Very poor in low light conditions, causes grainy and blurry results, Clunky process 30 min process photos. import and save one pic at a time. Very long process

Not having to focus on a pocket-cam is underrated. Wow!

runintotherain, CNET
1 March 2012
  • Pros: + Focus not necessary (working at a photography studio, let me tell you- if this is as good as it sounds... WOW), + Size, + Shape
  • Cons: - Only 1.2 Megapixels, - Price, - Is there a protective filter for the glass? What if it gets scratched in my pocket?

One trick pony

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 November 2014
  • Summary: One of the earlier reviews mentions that the reviewer fell into one of two camps and was very happy with his/her purchase, unfortunately I fall into the other camp. I love the optics but that is about it, I find it difficult to hold, I find the screen woefully small and the controls unergonomic. As reported image quality is not great and the Lytro website does not even touch on this model but gives polished examples of the high end £1500 model.

  • Summary: Brilliant little bit of kit. Software still has its downsides (editing and so-on) but the refocusing is brilliant for quick shots or low-light. I've replaced my old point and shoot with it and I'm very satisfied.

Welcome to a whole new world of photography.

R. Johnstone, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I'm not going to go over "old ground" here and explain what is different about this camera. The pictures and description should do this for you. There has been plenty written about this camera from the tech and photographic press for the last two years. But finally, Amazon are offering this product in the UK. I've just got my hands on one and, well, I'm just gob smacked. First up - it's smaller than I imagined.

Un entretenimiento creativo

Javier Marín, amazon.es

  • Summary: Una vez que se entiende el concepto de esta cámara se convierte en un entretenimiento muy interesante con muchas posibilidades creativas, pero no puede sustituir a nuestra cámara compacta tradicional. Cumple con todas las espectativas y aún más, pero hay que dedicarle un poquito de entrenamiento para conseguir efectos muy creativos e impactantes

Coole Funktion aber die Bildqualität lässt zu wünschen übrig

Jonas Beenenga, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Ich habe mir die Kamera gekauft, weil ich die Idee der Lichtfeldkamera super fand. Das nachfokussieren funktioniert auch top, aber die Bilder kann man nicht wirklich verwenden, denn die Qualität lässt doch sehr zu wünschen übrig. Wer also nur was sucht um Spaß beim Fotografieren (und nachfokussieren) zu haben ist die Kamera gut geeignet.
