Lytro Camera Shoot Now Focus Later

The Lytro that everyone has been talking about which works much differently than traditional cameras, captures the light field, so you can shift your shallow depth of field focus after you've snapped a pic. If every photo camera worked in this manner, there wouldn't be such a thing as 'out of focus images'. With such high tech features, the Lytro camera actually is smaller than I originally thought it needed to be, and the price tag is somewhat consumer friendly.

    The interactive demos on their website are done in Flash... anyone can simulate the exact same thing with a set of photos taken with different focus points. You'll notice there are only 3 or 4 predetermined focal planes in each demo photo... this is all they've done, for demo purposes, because there would obviously be no other way to simulate what their software does on the web... You'd have to install the software.

    I wonder then, if it just caputres all existing light, does it supposedly have an indefinite shutter speed? The reason I ask is for photographing quick-moving things like a car, a baby, or a soccer game.

    Looking forward to it regardless!

  3. Iv been hearing a lot about this for about 6 months now, I have watched all the videos about it and been on the website and had a play around with the refocus photos examples/demo's they show you (they look very Photoshoped/fake)and I have been trying my hardest to figure out if this is a Hoax. I would love it to be true, but sadly I think it's a publicity stunt, and it will never come to-light :(

    I wonder if this is the same technology Canon is using on that crazy looking DSLR we say a couple months back.

    It's very cool. If it eventually can be translated to video, it would be even cooler, but focus pullers would not be happy!
