  • Conclusion: The Lytro LFC is unlike any consumer camera we've ever seen before - it captures fundamentally different information and produces output unlike any conventional model. Lytro must be commended for having made something so comparatively consumer-ready without the financial backing or years of...
  • Pros: Interesting product design, Well-developed user interface, Simple workflow, despite concept's complexities, Interactive experience sharable on Facebook
  • Cons: Very low processed resolution, Explorable output tends to require contrived compositions, Small, low-res screen, Focus slow in Creative mode, Cross-hatch banding visible in high ISO images, No control over white balance can leave unpleasant tint under artificial light

Shoot Now, Focus Later

  • 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 .

  • 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.
  • Pros: Innovative technology. Compact. Easy online image sharing.
  • Cons: Expensive. Poor photo quality. Terrible ergonomics. Low-res LCD. Very limited editing software. Currently works with Macs only.

  • 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.

Review: Lytro Light Field Camera

Wired
29 February 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: A completely new way of approaching photography — will seem like manna from heaven for early adopters. No more out-of-focus pictures. Sharp, responsive optical zoom. Constant f/2 lens. Interactive photos can be posted to blogs and social networks. Days of battery life. Sharing photos is even more...
  • Cons: Too big for pockets. Placement and sensitivity of zoom control leads to misfires. Tiny LCD screen. Minimal editing options with initial launch. No Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, so there’s one more micro USB cable to keep track of.
