Light Field Camera Coming Soon

It appears the Lytro camera I wrote about last month is almost ready to be released. As much as I want one, I think I’ll wait for a second generation model. Then again at $400 I might succumb to temptation – even if it only yields a 1.2 megapixel image. CNET published a really rough review listing about a dozen other limitations. I don’t think it’s fair to compare it to other commercially available cameras. This camera is all about “fix it in post.” If you’re a photographer like me with better Photoshop skills than compositional skills, the Lytro might just represent the future.

It’s hard to justify yet another new “toy” camera when I’ve yet to really give the new GoPro a good workout. For $300 I got waterproof time lapse photos and full HD video. I’ll be posting something from that camera soon. Promise.
