The Lytro Camera is the first consumer camera that records the entire light field instead of a 2D image. And that changes everything.
By capturing the light field, you can do incredible things like refocus pictures you've taken on your camera, your computer, or on the web.
Now every picture you take is a chance to tell a new kind of story — refocus, change perspective, and add Living Filters to create a new look.
Using Lytro Desktop or Lytro Mobile, sharing your living pictures on the Lytro Web Gallery, Facebook, Twitter, and more is easier than ever.
Perspective Shift allows you to interactively change your point of view in a picture after you’ve taken the picture. On a computer or mobile device, you can shift the living picture in any direction; left, right, up, down and all around.
Perspective Shift works on light field pictures you’ve previously taken and with any new pictures you take. Change your perspective and see the moment come alive.
The anodized aluminum housing makes the camera strong yet lightweight. It’s also available in seven beautiful colors.*
Easy to hold, precision-tooled silicone enables you to effortlessly shoot with one hand or with two.
No autofocus means none of the shutter delay that comes with it. Instantly capture a shot before the moment is gone.
Running your fingertip across the slider controls the optical zoom.
An 8x optical zoom lens with a constant f/2 aperture offers a wide range of creative shots.
We joined a micro-lens array to a digital image sensor to capture the color, intensity, and direction of light entering the camera — 11 million light rays to be precise.
This is where the magic happens. The Light Field Engine processes the light rays captured by the sensor, so you can view it on the screen and refocus with a tap.
You control most of the camera functions with a tap or a swipe. And the backlit display lets you compose, review, and refocus your pictures
The Lytro camera gives you two ways to create living pictures. In Everyday Mode, with just the simple press of the shutter button, you’ll capture life’s great moments and each day’s priceless expressions.
In Creative Mode, you control the blur in the scene with just a tap. You can create amazing pictures like those with refocus between a small flower and a mountain range or along the legs of an ant crawling on the lens. You can also capture high zoom shots and compose dramatic portraits. You’ll never look at pictures the same way.
The Lytro camera now gives you more control over the light in the scene with the addition of Manual Controls. Set shutter speed and ISO through simple access of the controls from the camera’s touchscreen. Use Manual Controls to capture pictures like light painting shots with dramatic refocus and living pictures in motion.
The ISO range is 80 (min) to 3200 (max), and the minimum shutter speed is 1/250. You can also lock exposure and control the ND filter.See more pictures taken using Manual Controls
