Summary: The Lytro Light Field can be seen as a one of a kind camera. It keeps on its promises made in advertisements. But it costs kinda too much. However, it’s good for people who want to capture full HD videos and take photos.
Excerpt: Despite the best efforts of some avid post-capture sharpeners the focus point of most images is set at the point of capture. However, the Lytro Light Field Camera allows the focus point to be changed after the image is captured, so you switch from an object in the foreground being sharp to the background. The image refocuses before your eyes.
Excerpt: What’s rectangular, four-hundred bucks and focuses all over? The Lytro ($399) . Of all the inevitable announcements of cameras heading up to the holidays, the Lytro offers what might be the most unique feature of all: the ability to focus anywhere anytime . It accomplishes this by capturing how a particular scene “appears” with its sensor capturing more data (color, intensity, and direction of light) than a normal camera, which allows it to create photos that can be...
Conclusion: The Lytro lives up to its promise of capturing images that you can focus after they've been shot, but its image quality and ergonomics are poor, making the camera little more than an overpriced toy.
Excerpt: To publish a “review” of the Lytro as it is today is, in a way, very premature. But it’s also only fair. The product is shipping and, to an extent, complete. But given the number of features and planned improvements in the pipes, a review today will be obsolete in a few months. Nevertheless, an initial judgment on the device must be made. So here is what can be said of the Lytro in a form that can only really be called a public beta.
Pros: Camera is well-built and extremely easy to operate, Uniqueness of the imaging technique makes you think differently about photography, Could be good for kids
Cons: Image quality isn’t particularly good, Composition options are, in some ways, extremely limited, Many desirable ways to manage and adjust your photos are absent
Excerpt: After two weeks with the Lytro camera , I still can’t decide if it’s a highly refined proof-of-concept or an uneven look at the future of photography. It’s simultaneously addictive and frustrating. It’s also, as advertised, a truly unique photographic experience. If you missed the hype surrounding the announcement of Lytro’s light-field camera last year, the short explanation is that it allows you to focus your photos after you’ve taken them. That’s the addictive part.
Excerpt: Digital cameras haven't really changed since their inception - we might have more megapixels and more sensitive sensors now, but the basic concept has stayed the same. Lytro is looking to do something different with the first consumer Light Field Camera. It captures more than just , which means you can adjust the point of focus after you've taken a picture. Lytro has been available in the US for over a year, but the camera has finally made its way to the UK.
