I just read about a new camera 4D: LYTRO drchoneydew Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 162 W: 38 N: 475] (3501)::2012-01-15 18:45
Anyone else hear of it? I think its incredible how it captures a photo with "interactive images", almost "Fstop-fool proof" lytro

It's as if you don't even have to focus! humm

Lytro camera’s features include:

 Form follows function: The Lytro’s unique compact
design is driven by its 8x optical zoom lens, which features
a constant f/2 aperture. The Lytro’s anodized aluminum
body is lightweight yet sturdy. At less than eight ounces,
the Lytro puts remarkable power in a pocket-sized camera.

 Proprietary light field science: The Lytro is the only
camera that captures life in living pictures. Its innovative
light field sensor captures 11 million light rays of data (or 11
megarays), including the direction of each ray, something
conventional cameras don’t do. The light field engine then
processes the data into a picture that is displayed in HD quality.

 Unparalleled speed: The Lytro’s speed ensures that people never miss a moment. It turns on instantly and has an instant shutter. With no need to auto-focus, the Lytro has no shutter delays.

 Low-light sensitivity: By using all of the available light in a scene, the Lytro performs well in low-light environments without the use of a flash.

 Significant storage: The Lytro is available in both 8GB and 16GB models, storing 350 and 750 pictures respectively. In addition, our first camera owners will enjoy free storage for the light field pictures they’ve uploaded to Lytro.com.

 Seeing in 3D: Coming soon! Captured as a full light field, all pictures taken with the Lytro are inherently 3D. Special light field algorithms, available in 2012, will be applied to the light field pictures to enable viewing on any 3D display and to enable viewers to shift the perspective of the scene.
just found an interactive site on it too drchoneydew Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 162 W: 38 N: 475] (3501)::2012-01-15 18:50
Just double click on the photo examples and it enlarges and tap again and it focus's...automatically. This is REALLY going to change things up and its so tiny! Almost seems wrong...yet its right!!!!!
