Maybe “dummies” is a little harsh, since I count myself among the amateur photographers who have to think a bit about f-stops when I experiment with depth of field. But since thinking reportedly gives you wrinkles
, I wouldn’t mind trying out the new Lytro camera (pictured below, right).
The makers of the Lytro say that unlike a conventional camera which captures a single plane of light, the Lytro captures data from the entire “light field,” allowing the point of focus to change. There’s more about that technology in Lytro CEO Ren Ng’s dissertation, found at the bottom of this page
. The photos above and below are from Lytro. Click on the images to change the focus. What do you think? Coolest thing ever, or photography meets Autotune?
