What is Lytro exactly? Well, it’s a new kind of camera, which is now available worldwide. To quote from the Lytro website, “it’s the first consumer camera that records the entire light field — all the rays of light traveling in every direction through a scene — instead of a flat 2D image”. Take a picture of anything, put it on your computer, and then you can click all around the picture again and again to re-focus. That’s right, you can pick any focus point you want on the picture, and if you upload the photo online via the Lytro Desktop application which comes for free, people browsing through the pictures can do the same thing. The people at Lytro call this kind of picture a “living picture”. It’s a consumer camera, but more serious shooters will most likely welcome it having manual controls. You can adjust your shutter speed from 1/250s to 8s, and your ISO from 80 to 3200. It also has a neutral density filter option and an auto exposure lock. As you can see in the picture, the camera is offered in different colors, but only the red version has a 16GB storage, while the rest only have 8GB for storage. The pink version is only available through Target.
