I think the sales-point would be to save people the time and effort of intensive processing and condensing it into a single click. Of course, I'm skeptical if this company can build a high-quality all-around camera (especially in a dSLR format). I'd like to see them team up with Canon or Nikon personally.big_load wrote:Hmmm. You can do something like that with a very precisely measured bad lens and a whole bunch of processing.

Some interactive photos on the Lytro.com website that you can manipulate.The Lytro camera is available in two models: 8GB ($399, 350 pictures, in Electric Blue or Graphite) and 16GB ($499, 750 pictures, in Red Hot). It is now available to order at Lytro.com and will ship in early 2012. The Lytro desktop application will be available initially for the Mac operating system; a Windows version will be available in 2012.
I'm guessing that there is a limitation to the manipulations based on what they created in Flash. If you click on certain focal points it works fine, but if you chose random spots in the photo, nothing changes from the focal points. But I'd be interested in seeing how it really works, rather than a Flash attempt at illustrating it.Al_HikesAZ wrote:Some interactive photos on the Lytro.com website that you can manipulate.
Seems that's the biggest issue right now. While they don't measure their format in megapixels, if you flatten a lytro image to a "normal" photo, the quality just isn't there. Especially these days when people have 8mp on their phone.

It seems more like it would compare to 1 megapixel photos.
