Digital Picture Taking- The all new Lytro Camera
Small Package- Big Focus
The First Digital Light Field Camera
As a photographer, I know there is nothing more frustrating than taking the perfect picture, and learning that it wasn’t so perfect after all-because it wasn’t in focus. This no longer has to be the case, because there is now a camera that has infinite focus, which you may change with the touch of a button or a touch to the touch screen. Confused? Don’t be, let me now introduce the coolest little camera, it may not look like much, but will soon be changing the way that we take pictures and capture memories.
The Lytro Camera is the first, light field camera. The big difference is the software inside of the camera that does not require you to focus on your subject before you take the photo. The camera itself has built in memory, which is a positive and a negative, depending on how you look at it. It is a positive, because you do not have to worry about buying an additional memory card. The negative is: if you fill up the internal memory, you need to either erase or download what you have onto your computer, because you cannot add any additional memory to the camera.

Cool Features- Sure to give you a new focus on digital
Now, let’s get back to the cool part of the camera…the infinite focus feature. What this means for those un-perfect-unfocused pictures is... there will no longer be a picture deleted because of the focus being off. How? Let me explain. The software within the camera automatically loads to your desktop or laptop. Once you open a picture within the editing tool, you can choose your focus frame. This is really cool, because what it means is you can literally make the same photo into multiple photos with different areas of focus.
Some additional cool and innovative features on this camera are the touch screen that allow you to interact with the pictures, just as you would from your computer. The specs within the camera include an 8x Optical Zoom (yes, I said optical-not digital), an F2 constant aperture and an instant shutter along with the light field sensor that captures all the light information from every part of your photo, which is what makes this so unique.
Okay, that is enough of my explanation. What I really wanted to do is show you this video I came across on YouTube; it is the product review from CNET, on the innovative and new Lytro Camera. I am buying this one for sure, so I will let you know if I have any complaints or additional praise on this. Thank you for reading and I hope you take the time to watch the CNET review of the Lytro Camera, scheduled to start shipping out this year.
