Light Field Cameras

Recommended Posts

Lytro announced production of a light field camera...it captures all light and focus in the entire depth of field every time you take a photo. Freak'n cool.

Definitely would love to see someone partner with them to make a housing for launch day.

 

I have no connection with the company...just thought it was super cool and took a break from lurking here for a day.

I have one on pre-order and am scheduled for the Feb/March shipping window....we are supposedly going to be notified 1-2 weeks before it actually ships. Has there been any more news on UW housings for the Lytro? Haven't been able to find any new news...

Got my 8 GB Lytro last week, and have been running around shooting random people/objects with it. Pretty cool technology, and it's been a lot of fun looking for opportunities to create more interesting photos with depth. The camera itself feels very solid and well made.

 

I'm definitely curious what it could do underwater, thought it does require a lot of light.

from what i can see on the Lytro website, it they have the rights of the image you put on there, they can :

and i gather you can view the pictures on your computer or tablet but it has to be connected to the internet (presumably only via there website). or you can just keep the image on your camera..

 

Im not so contract savvy and am really excited about the Lytro camera and for only $400 too thats awesome, but its a b it vague, about quality and rights.. but im certainly looking forward to some 'cracked versions and for what the future holds.. in fact the future is here,

 

im so excited i peed a little bit more in my wetsuit than usual
