Lytro Illum Light Field Digital Camera
The Lytro Illum Light Field Digital Camera uses the unique Light Field sensor and the Light Field Engine 2.0 for image capture and processing. With a micro-lens array on the sensor it records the color, intensity, and direction of light traveling in every direction throughout a scene and creates "living pictures" in which the focus point can be determined after you have shot the image. Focus range for the Illum is from 0 mm to infinity, it can actually focus on a subject touching up against the lens. The dedicated "Lytro Button" next to the shutter release enables a color-coded overlay to appear on the live view LCD image which demonstrates the relative focus and depth of field of your image in order to better recognize the "re-focusable" range. You can shoot up to 1/4000th of a second and change ISO sensitivity via 2 customizable buttons and an integrated hot shoe mount is compatible with most standard flashes and offers manual and TTL control. An external shutter release port is supported and you can set a custom white balance. This camera is ideal for experimental photography.
