Lytro Light Field Camera review

 

It's not like other cameras

Clever focus shifting ; Easy to use ; Solid build

Poor LCD ; low resolution images ; expensive

Fantastic technology that's as cutting edge as it is expensive. An asset for macro fans and certainly impressive, but the Lytro remains a novelty purchase until established camera manufacturers integrate the tech. The Lytro Light Field Camera is easy...

Lytro Light Field Camera review

 

The Lytro camera is an amazing technological achievement: a marvel of design that really is like nothing else on the market. But innovation aside, it may not prove that useful or fun just yet for advanced photographers – or even everyday snappers.

There's something truly incredible in the Lytro concept that I'm hoping we'll get to see in the future. That could be in a future Lytro camera; or licensed to the likes of Canon, Nikon or Sony for a next-generation digital SLR; or to Apple, Samsung,...

Lytro camera, software updates breathe new life into year-old Illum light-field camera

 

The camera's version 2.0 firmware update brings faster performance and interface enhancements, while the Lytro Desktop 4.3 software gives users a taste of the company's future VR plans.

Lytro light field camera

 

Review Since before the days of Fox Talbot, cameras have worked like the human eye. A lens focuses an image on a plane, be it a retina, silver halide or electronic sensors. The Lytro is different

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been pondering what the usefulness of the Lytro Light Field Camera. Much like when I had my first Sinclair Z80 computer people said: yes, but what’s it for? I’ve decided the job of the Lytro is to make you think...

Lytro Light Field camera

 

The Lytro Light Field sensor is capable of capturing all the light in a scene, giving you a new way to play with depth of field in your photographs

Build quality ; Interactive results

Screen can be tricky to view, which can make it hard to frame a scene, especially outdoors

The Lytro is an innovative camera that can capture all the light in a scene and let you play around with the depth of field after you take the photo. It's a camera that should appeal to photography and camera enthusiasts.

Lytro Light Field Camera

 

The Lytro lives up to its promise of capturing images that you can focus after they've been shot, but its image quality and ergonomics are poor, making the camera little more than an overpriced toy.

Innovative technology. Compact. Easy online image sharing.

Expensive. Poor photo quality. Terrible ergonomics. Low-res LCD. Very limited editing software. Currently works with Macs only.

The camera's lens has a rather long 8x zoom range, which covers an approximate 35-280mm focal range. But you won't be able to access all of the zoom in the Lytro's default mode. You'll be limited to a 35-123mm field of view, unless you switch to the...

Lytro Light Field Camera review

 

Editors' note: On July 24, 2012, Lytro released a Windows 7 (64-bit) version of its desktop software, which is required to offload and process pictures from the light-field camera. The Lytro camera can now be used with Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later and...

The eye-catching, revolutionary Lytro Light Field Camera creates photos that you can refocus again and again -- after you've shot them -- opening up new creative possibilities.

The proprietary Lytro image file format can only be processed and edited with Lytro's software. Low-light photo quality is disappointing. Its LCD is poor for such an otherwise high-end device.

The Lytro Light Field Camera rethinks photography with its unique hardware and fascinating image output. But if you're not a gadget-loving early adopter with deep pockets, steer clear until Lytro makes improvements.

Lytro Light Field Camera

 

There was a lot of excitement when the New York Times wrote about a small company promising to make focus errors a thing of the past. A camera that allowed you to focus after you take the picture. Its subject was Lytro, a startup promising to make its...

Interesting product design Well-developed user interface Simple workflow, despite concept's complexities Interactive experience sharable on Facebook

Very low processed resolution Explorable output tends to require contrived compositions Small, low-res screen Focus slow in Creative mode Cross-hatch banding visible in high ISO images No control over white balance can leave unpleasant tint under...

The Lytro LFC is unlike any consumer camera we've ever seen before - it captures fundamentally different information and produces output unlike any conventional model. Lytro must be commended for having made something so comparatively consumer-ready...
