Every once in a while something comes along to completely revolutionize an already well established industry. The Lytro Illum Camera set out to do just that, and they very well might succeed. The Lytro Illum has the unique ability to change your focal point, aperture, and perspective even during post production. It does this with light-field photography, which also captures the direction in which light was moving, instead of capturing a single light plane like most DSLR’s. The processor then essentially renders a 3D scene with the knowledge of distance between the objects in your composition. The lens is an 8x optical zoom (30-250mm) at a constant f/2.0 aperture which is versatile enough to work for any photography field, even macro as it focuses right up to the end of the lens. With a hot shoe for external flash, and familiar camera conventions like auto exposure lock, auto focus, exposure mode, ISO, shutter speed, and white balance the transition from your current DSLR to the Lytro Illum camera is sure to be easy. Head over the Lytro website to learn more and purchase it for $1,600.
