Lytro has started shipping its first cameras to US customers. Whilst housings and underwater equipment for the camera are not yet commercially available, it is apparent that the technology is going to change the way pictures are taken and as Wetpixel Publisher, Eric Cheng is Director of Photography at Lytro, I’m sure they will be going underwater soon. Ren Ng, Founder and CEO of the company said:
“Six years ago, I wrote in my PhD dissertation: “I find that this new kind of photography makes taking pictures that much more enjoyable, and I hope you will too. I look forward to the day when I can stand in the tall grass and learn from fellow light field photographers shooting in the field.” That day has arrived – see you out there!
