On Lytro announces Light Field Camera article (271 comments in total)

Let me start by saying Congrats to the folks over at Lytro INC. You guys have done an awesome job.

I think this item to have all kinds of applications. It's no point in rating it from a professional equipment Point of View. It's not.

It is however a cool gadget.

No Flash, so the night life "out with the ladies" might be out the question. it's not ergonomic so it will be dropped often, (nothing a rubber case won't fix).

If you have to wait to upload it to focus it, looking at the rear LCD after the shot will be useless. Just take the pic, and keep it moving. That being said, i think they will do well with the online photo world. (these people don't need nor want prints). they just want to show off their "good times" but then, that's why they have camera phones.

Tawen Mei: I don't want to focus afterward. I'd rather have a smart camera that knows what my subject is. Face detection does an okay good job at that.

Not to be discouraging to the folks that made it happen, as this is a step forward in engineering, but a giant leap backward for consumers.

And honestly, there has been shots that I missed at a function and be exited to see it, only to see that it's out of focus. It would be great if they had a plug-in for Photoshop that could do this! seriously, I would buy it.

GeoTogger: can anyone see any details about controlling iso and shutter speed?! F/2 lens is all well and good, but if iso is crap there is no advantage over just having a good cam with capable high iso then setting it at infinity with small aperture and adding blur in pp to your hearts desire...

-there are NO pictures in low light on the website. NONE.

obv no flash too!

the main application i can think for this technology is for truly candid people photos, action shots especially at tele, and if iso is good then nighttime photography.

otherwise i'm all for the idea, and appalled by the lack of imagination of commenters on this site, and their inability to ask the pertinent questions.

There is one, "A drink before takeoff?" It's a nice shot, but the low light situation has produced some noise in the sample. So low light will present a problem for this yet still, amazing little gadget.

pacogwapo: if only apple makes pro camera this would be rubbish in comparison.

Yeah right, you would need all apple software, computers, flash, and strap, and... Aw forget it. You'll pay thousands for all the accessories!

LOL

Tee1up: I am having trouble figuring out if this is best used as a studio, road warrior/sports or all of the above. I guess the kicker will be a few formal, in-depth reviews.

I personally think its all marketing. You can use any camera you want for the studio. In my own PERSONAL OPINION, it's not that demanding (ON THE CAMERA I MEAN).

This camera will do it all. Am I saying it will please everybody? No. But we're fickle like that, you know?

mjbehnke: I need a better Lens just to get my photos to look as good as the photos from you all! The kit lens just isn't that great! Wish me luck and I wish you all the same.

Hello! Just an helpful advice, invest in a good USED lens; and when you get it, get real familiar with the tonal adjustment possible in Photoshop. Happy Shooting!
