The worst camera I ever used... By a very big margin
Jun 11, 2014

This would be short: interesting concept, still not sure that even in best execution it would be reasonable and interesting alternative to regular photography; but Lytro is totally useless - unsharp, poor color, poor dynamic range, cannot focus to infinity, ultra-low resolution, poor interface, limited rage where effect of refocusing works, slow to focus, horrible low light performance - really novelty $20 spy-pen quality in a huge, expensive body. This may come across as too nuanced, so let me clarify - I got mine used for $70, in perfect shape - would feel good about the purchase if it was $5.
