Lytro, anyone?

I just ordered an inexpensive refurbished Lytro today.

I was pretty excited when these light field digicams made their debut but the cost and practicality kept me from buying. But hell, for less than $100, I’m game to give it a go now.

Do any of my followers have a Lytro?  What has your experience been?

What is a Lytro?

It’s a 'light field' camera that captures light coming from different directions. This gives you the ability to refocus the image after you’ve taken the photo; you can also make 3D images.  The problem is you can’t really do much with the camera or images—you’re pretty much stuck viewing images online or converting to a low-res jpeg.  Visit Lytro’s gallery to see what people are creating-the images are wonderful.

“ Hundreds of people know I’m gay, I just never made it an official declaration. I never felt I had to wear a billboard on my forehead. But I’m gay. Get over it. I love it. It’s a great life. ”

That’s a great building. Friends of mine are going to Molly Stark tomorrow morning. Google it. It is in your wheelhouse.

I’m not sure when I’ll be headed back to this area but thanks for the tip…that seems like a great place to check out!
