Never focus on the wrong thing ever again

We all had that issue at some stage where we took an awesome picture and when we looked at it on our computers the important parts were out of focus.

I have been talking about a lens developed by Adobe here, but now there is a competitor that says they will have a competitively priced consumer camera will be coming out later this year. They are called Lytro.

They are working on a light field camera that captures the missing dimensions of the light that flows into a picture. These cameras have been around for a while now, but they weren’t commercially viable.

With their product you can focus on the background, the foreground, somewhere in the middle or just make the whole picture in focus. There is also the possibility to slightly change the perspective of the shot.

Pretty cool stuff and I hope it is going to be affordable, because I will get one.
