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.
