Lytro Light Field Camera
The Lytro Light Field camera is not like any other camera you’ve ever seen. It looks more like a mini telescope and it works in a fundamentally different way from other digital cameras. You’ll never have to worry about focussing on the wrong bit of the frame ever again – with the Lytro you can refocus your pictures just by clicking on them. Share your pictures online, and your friends can instantly refocus them just like you do.
This is the first consumer camera that records the entire light field – all the rays of light travelling in every direction through a scene – instead of a flat 2D image. This lets you refocus pictures after you take them. Tap the touchscreen on whatever part of the picture you want to bring into focus – or, once a picture is imported to your computer, click to refocus.
Lytro Desktop lets you import your living pictures to your computer. Then, easily share them to the web, Facebook, Twitter, and more, so your friends can refocus and shift perspective with the pictures.
Perspective Shift allows you to interactively change your point of view in a picture, after you’ve taken the picture. On a computer or mobile device, you can shift the living picture left, right, up, down and all around. This works on light field pictures you’ve previously taken and with any new pictures you take.

In Everyday Mode, you’ll capture clear, crisp photos instantaneously thanks to the lack of autofocus waiting times.
In Creative Mode, you control the blur in the scene with just a tap. You can create amazing pictures like those with refocus between a small flower and a mountain range or along the legs of an ant crawling on the lens.
Set shutter speed and ISO through simple access of the controls from the camera’s touchscreen. Use the manual settings to capture pictures like light painting shots with dramatic refocus.
The flexible ISO range is between 80 and 3200, with a minimum shutter speed of 1/250. You can also lock exposure and control the ND filter.
