The Lytro Camera Captures Light in All Directions

Despite the Lytro Camera's compact size, there's a lot more to it than meets the eye.

The Lytro Camera is the first of its kind, so how does it set itself apart? Normally, a regular camera captures a single plane of light when the picture is taken. However, the Lytro will capture the entire field of light, which means every direction and point in space that light is traveling will be harnessed. Auto-focus is also not required for this camera, which means shutter delays will no longer occur.

It will be interesting to see the development of the Lytro Camera in coming years. If you're looking for a high-tech cam without delay times, then this is the perfect fit.
