It doesn’t look like any camera you’ve ever seen, and that’s because it’s not. The Lytro makes images that can be refocused after they’re shot, even moved around in 3 dimensions. These “living” pictures have made the Lytro one of the most envy-worthy pieces of photo gear, and right now you can get one for just $369.99 at Cult of Mac Deals.
Lytro’s “living pictures” makes the refocusing, perspective shifts and 3D depth possible by capturing the direction — rather than just the position — of millions of light rays. That doesn’t mean it’s unfamiliar to use, featuring the common digital camera features like auto focus, exposure modes, etc. On top of that, it’s sturdy and compact, and shoots photos at an optimal resolution for sharing online, along with a bevy of photo filters.
