Big Blog Day - Lytro
Ooh, Ooh. They're here.
The Lytro cameras are here in the shop right now and you can make them work right now. You point the camera at your subject, press the shoot button, and it shoots.
No delay. No waiting for it to focus on the subject. Immediate. Bad light? No problem - 80-3200 ISO - f: 2 lens. Auto shooting to your heart's content.
Do it yourself? Manual shutter speed from 1/250 to 8 seconds. Adjust the ISO wherever you fancy. Lock your exposure by touching the screen on whatever you want.
Macro? Easy. You can get so close your lens is practically touching the subject. Tap on the screen. Shoot away.
But. But. But...Does it have a zoom lens? You bet your but. 1X to 3.5X in the everyday mode and 1X to 8X in the macro mode. You just swipe along the top of the camera to do the zooming.
We've got the Red Hot in action right now with the capacity to hold 750 light field pictures and the blue and gray models that hold 350 light field pictures.
Light field pictures? Whazzat?
Remember at the start I said you didn't have to wait for the Lytro to focus? That's because it takes Light Field Pictures that capture ALL planes of focus. You tap the viewing screen on your saved image and wherever you tap the picture comes into focus. Tap around the screen and the focus changes wherever you want. And when you load it into your computer, the same thing applies - you can refocus all your Lytro files wherever they are!
More Lytro news as we discover it. Stay tuned.
