This year, Lytro will debut with the first light field camera for everyone.
This is a unique new type of camera that "simply" allow the user to select focus point after the picture has been taken !
The main idea behind it, is that the camera has light field sensor.
This sensor catches color, intensity and vector direction of the rays of light.
(Traditional digital camera capture only color). But the main magic happens with software that translates this data and generates the final image.
Here are few very cool examples, just click on the area to focus on !
The quality of the image is poor and the size is also very small, but maybe with some advances in technology it will improve.
