    Lytro "The light field camera"

    Whilst the lytro is really on a point and shoot, the concept and science behind this unique camera, if developed, could change photography forever.

    Here are some Lytro photos. Try them out. Click with your mouse at any point on the photo to change the focus point..yep that is right, you can change the focus point after taking the photo

    That is amazing, to be able to change the focus point after you have taken the photo is revolutionary.

    Nice one Rick

    Any idea how it does it?

    You can buy them for about $500.00. As for how they work, there are videos on their site that explain the concepts behind the science.

    I like that one Rick. Six shops in Qld and nowhere near we live either otherwise I would be tempted.
    The flowers one was the best that was great moving the focus to the other ones.

    How do you print the photos?

    I guess the functionality is only available when viewed on screen.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Yep, you set the focus point and then can create a print from that one. But you could print several versions of the same photo, each with differing focus points selected. Would create an interesting montage, triptych etc.

    Or perhaps use the files for focus stacking.

    I wonder if it will do macro?

    I think it's a one trick pony. Small depth of field, wherever you want after the fact, cool (at first) but that's it.

    I predict we will get sick of looking at the pics from these cameras, they will be the next instagrams...

    I agree that "the concept and science behind this unique camera, if developed, could change photography forever" and, despite the limitations, have been enjoying my own Lytro: https://pictures.lytro.com/Darcy1968
