This is not like any camera you’ve seen before. First off, have you ever taken a photo and wished
it was in focus, and the entire subject is out of focus?
Well the Lytro uses a completely different method of capturing light. Not really sure how it does, something about how the light is bent into the sensor, but the breakthrough is that even after taking a photo with the Lytro, using their software you can refocus the image as if you were there taking it again.
The sensor can also somehow capture the image in a 3-Dimensonial way which brings incredible depth out of photos. Definitely a technology that hasn’t been exposed as much as it should be!
