Remember the Lytro Light Field Cameras that allowed you to refocus your image AFTER you took it? First announced in 2011, and then shipped in 2012, these pocket sized cameras garnered a lot of interest but were largely seen as being on the expensive side running upwards of $500 in some cases for the 8GB version.
These First Generation Lytro Cameras were the first camera available to consumers that captures the entire light field which allows photographers to adjust the focal point after the photograph was taken, and then exporting a “flat” 2D image at the desired focal length. The 8GB version holds up to 350 images, while the 16GB version holds up to 750 images.
If you were always interested in the technology and trying one out, Amazon has some pretty good deals on the 8GB Graphite, 8GB Pink, or 16GB Red versions and are selling them at $59.99 and $79.99 respectively. While the system didn’t seem to take off as well as Lytro hoped, this is probably your best chance to see what all the fuss was about and give this technology a whirl.
