The future of photography is here

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

A few years ago I read about light field cameras and got excited about the potential and the change it would bring in ‘capturing the world around you’.

Instead of capturing a single plane of light as conventional cameras do, a light field camera captures the entire light field (which is all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space). This makes it possible to change the focus of a picture *after* the picture is taken…byebye out-of-focus pictures! 😉

This year the technology went mainstream after Lytro, a company that “produces light field cameras that everyone can enjoy”, released its rather affordable camera. Check out the Lytro website for some amazing examples (or check out this YouTube clip ‘How To Take a Light Field Portrait with the Lytro Camera’)

Yeah, this will dramatically change photography for the first time since the 1800s…iWant! 😉
