This camera is pretty old news. Do some searches on here and there is plenty of info on it. I personally don't like it simply because it takes the challenge out of photography.

"Digital takes the challenge out of photography"
"TTL takes the challenge out of photography"
"Flash takes the challenge out of photography"

The "takes the challenge out" is an argument as old as technology itself.

Right now the Lytro is a baby, no flash, very low res, it's very limited. But the technology could be the future of all cameras, or it could be a fad if it can't go much past where it is now.

The final image from that camera is only about 1.2MP, and the software is Mac only. It has no flash, no manual controls at all (tap on the small image to pick an exposure point), and it takes photos as perfect squares. No word yet on its light sensitivity and/or noise.

I think first it has to become a hit.

You would have thought that they would have tried to enter the Christmas market if at all possible... but not due out until 2012.

Old news but I hope in the future all the big DSLR players will buy that chip or pay for that technology and incorporate it.

I feel the same about automatic shutters. They just make things to easy.

Digital? For the weak. Shutters? For the weak. Film? For the weak. Forget Photography, I paint.

Photography makes recreating things too easy.

I use bone to carve what I see into cave walls.

So, start with a pic that has a very wide Depth Of Field, then have software that at a touch/click applies the "lens blur" effect to everything but what the software "perceives" as an object..."fake" selective focusing!

Alright, I see some of you like to joke. I should say it takes one of the challenges out of photography. I used to use all manual lenses on Pentax, so yes I know what that's like. But being able to just blindly take a picture and not worry about focus or DOF is kinda boring.
