Lytro – The Camera Just Got Smart And Sexy
We at Appleissimo HQ are aficionados of great design, hence why we love Apple products so much and believe Jony Ive is a god-like genius – However we are not so blinkered to not appreciate exquisite design from other companies.
Step forward Lytro and their gorgeous light-field camera which has just been released to the world. The camera is jaw-droppingly beautiful, so much so that you could mistake it for a product created in Cupertino.
But what is Lytro all about?
Unlike a conventional camera that only captures a single plane of light, this Lytro camera will capture the entire light field – that is all the light, travelling in every direction, in every point in space! Impressive eh?!
By just pressing a single button, Lytro captures everything instantly and here comes the really cool bit – You can then focus your photos after they are taken – Focusing post-photo means no auto-focus motor, which in turn means no shutter delay – With Lytro you can capture the exact moment you wanted to, not the one a shutter-delayed camera captured for you. Lytro enables you to refocus your snaps at anytime.
We live in a sharing age and Lytro want their camera to be the most social on the market – Therefore they have made sharing your snaps to Facebook and Twitter easy from your desktop and from Lytro.com
