Is the world of digital photography

  1. that's pretty cool
  2. Hmmmm.... I am naturally skeptical so I'm not sure that's going to replace our DSLR's but, it is a very interesting idea. Be interesting to see how it goes.
  3. As technology is increasing day by day....This is the world of digital photography..As in digital there are well clarity and good color appearance.
  4. 50 million dollar start up

    All of this without the aid of govt stimulus dollars! Love it. :thumb: Hope the guy makes it, big time.
  5. I've been waiting forever for this to come out. When I first saw this, I was like, "I want one now!" It's still on pre-order, prices aren't too bad, but there's no announcement yet of when it'll actually come out, except for "Early 2012". And why does it only work on a Mac?! I really hope this gets off the ground. Who knows, 10 years from now, your kid will say, "How come this photo is dead?!" when they see one of your pics from 2012.

  6. The Lytro cameras are actually really fascinating. I got to hang out with the Lytro crew, play with the camera, and talk with their directory of photography while I was in vegas for CES.

    Here's a photo I took of my iphone taking a photo (clever, eh?):

    Here's a photo of my ugly mug:

    At the moment, it's not going to replace "serious" cameras. But the technology is amazing and when you talk to the on the Lytro team about what they could theoretically do going forward it's pretty neat. The cameras themselves won't be the easiest for some of you to handle. The touch screen LCD is small and the few controls on the body are not particularly easy to feel. It's really more in a trendy "early adopter" form factor right now. That will probably change in the future as the 2nd and 3rd gen products come out.

    Very VERY neat though. I can't wait to get one in my hands for a full review.
  7. His dissertation is pretty interesting. Probably even more so for someone like you that understands more of what he's talking about.
  8. Good follow up reads here.
  9. If you are ok compromising ultimate quality for a gimmick!

  10. There's not really any way to say that with any accuracy.

    After all, consider this. Given the way the the light field cameras gather information, you could have a Lytro camera that could eliminate all lens aberrations simply by knowing what they were and where they existed in the lens/image circle and then calculating for that fact when processing.

    It's really a fascinating concept when you start too look at what they should be able to do with it.
  11. Do you think digital has reached the quality of film? Surely when digital was in it's infancy it could not even compare to film. To shrug off the science behind Lytro is ignorant.
  12. I think color digital especially high ISO performance has surpassed film.
    My comment was kind of troll'ish. I think it's a very very cool concept camera and the technology is pretty remarkable.
    But it is being introduced at the consumer/point and shoot level market, so it is for people who want something that is easy and convenient. Not people who are chasing perfection.
    I would be interested in seeing 100% crops of the original files.
