Meet the Illum, Lytro’s futuristic new light-field camera | The Verge
Lytro’s innovative way of capturing a complete, 3D “light field” version of a scene instead of just quickly snapping a 2D photograph. It’s what lets you refocus a picture after the fact, or convert it to 3D, or subtly shift the perspective of the shot without ever having moved the camera.
Some very interesting tech at play here. The Lytro Illum will not revolutionize photography right now, but give it a few iterations and it just might. The innovative way of capturing an image also brings other benefits such as for example a more effective lens design. The Illum has a 30-250mm zoom lens with an impressive f/2.0 fixed aperture. Other specs include a 1 inch sensor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 804 processor and a 4 inch touchscreen. Oh, and a $1,599 price tag.
