Add Dimension To Your Photos With Lytro

Photographers everywhere have been standing in puddles of their own drool for the past few months ogling the most outrageous pictures I’ve seen online every. Every once in a while, a device comes along that captures the imagination and grips the heart with it’s perfection.

Ren Ng, Ph. D. founder and CEO took a detour, and instead of becoming a professor, developed Lytro which uses light field technology to bring never before seen capabilities to photography.

The much anticipated Lytro, a revolution in digital photography, is at your doorstep. Lytro delivers unprecedented picture quality by capturing light on every plane. Watch your pictures come alive with this remarkable device. If you’re not on the pre-order list yet, you should be.

Can you imagine being able to alter the focus of your image after it’s been taken? There’s no need to fantasize, you can experience that today. Eliminating the need to focus for a shot saves you time allowing you to capture the moment you intended instead of the moment afterwards.

Lytro lets you take pictures like never before. Unlike a conventional camera that captures a single plane of light, the Lytro camera captures the entire light field, which is all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space.

Even after your picture is taken and shared on Facebook or Twitter, your family and friends can still interact with your images, changing focus depending on what they prefer. The images are dynamic and alive. Within their pixels is the life of the scene which can be played with, felt and shared on any device including your tablet.

Touting a constant f/2 aperture and an 8x optical zoom, the Lytro Light Field Camera takes in every morsel of light across its entire range. It’s got a multi-touch screen, and extruded anodized aluminum structural skin and a $500 price tag.

Lytro is lightweight and has no settings or modes to worry about. By capturing such a wide spectrum of light, it can do away with all these things including a flash. Save your processing for post and keep your eye on the prize. Live in the moment and then relive that moment with the world’s first light field camera.
