Summary: Oh boy! Drooling over hyped Light Field Technology for yeas, finally, for what appeared to be fantastic price, I got it. It would be OK camera 15 years ago. This is, at the best, technology preview demo. At worst - it is completely botched product.
Summary: This is a incredible technology, I like this gadget. I have several cameras (Canon 5D MII, Canon Elan 7, Canon AE 1, Canon EOS M) and several lenses... and if you want to buy this camera, don't think to print the pictures from Lytro (or maybe can you print with a little post process like onOne...
Summary: I love the function and results of this camera. Amazing photos. However, it has a fatal flaw. The camera is useless without the Lytro software and the Lytro software is useless without the camera. Highly proprietary with little support from the open source community or otherwise.
Summary: This is a cool camera. I got the Lytro 1st Gen the other day to play around with it. its pretty cool, defiantly feels and looks like something Apple would make. First impressions are its pretty cool but has a long way to go to get to be mainstream.
Summary: Not only did it not live up to the hype, it doesn't compete with simple point and shoots. Love the concept and the industrial design, but the execution of the images (quality, portability, and so on) is wanting. Too minimal of an end product to justify the hoops you have to jump through.
Summary: This is a mildly interesting device that's ultimately a gimmick, and I can't think of any reason to recommend it to anyone. You don't need to focus! That's the problem it solves....but the truth is that this isn't really a problem.
Summary: This item is junk. I bought it when it was 75% off, thinking well even if its not super amazing. At least it will be kind of neat to monkey with. Since it was only 70$s or so. That was not the case. I got the thing and it wouldn't turn on.
