Review of Lytro Light-Field Camera
This is the camera that made some headlines a year or so ago. Here's an early review:

Ran across this page, which has links to several reviews, and a summary.

Roger Cicala, at, in his Blog article Sensor Size Matters – Part 2, had this to say about the Lytro Light-Field Camera:


Lytros has published photos all over the place showing razor-sharp, narrow depth of field obtained with this tiny sensor. Buuuuutttt, given this tiny sensor, as Shakespeare would say, “I do smelleth the odor of strong fertilizer issuing forth from yon marketing department.” Focus on one part of the image after the shot? Even with an f/2.0 lens in front of it, at that sensor size the whole image should be in focus. Perhaps blur everywhere else after the shot? Why, wait a minute . . . you could just do that in software, now couldn’t you?

I have to say it looks really, really cool. I'm tempted, but I expect that this version will be $99 within a year. But really its the technology (recording light + angle) that will be revolutionary.
