New generation Lytro light-field camera anounced:

lytro-illum-3-quarter-new-970x646-c.jpg

 

Lytro gets serious with the $1,599 Illum light-field camera

 

I can just imagine this thing being able in the next generation to

pump those light-field gathered files at our beloved film frame rates or higher...

 

The new RAW?

 

No worries about focus/DoF?

No more focus pullers?

 

...

 

Anyone new to light-filed imaging can read
Lytro Founder Ren Ng’s PhD dissertation "DIGITAL LIGHT FIELD PHOTOGRAPHY"

Don't be discouraged, it is not just (abstract) text and formulas, plenty of pictures and diagrams.

 

 

 

Best

Fascinating technology, and I have no doubt it'll eventually find specific niche use within the broader filmmaking world - but the moment you take intent out of the images you capture and leave it for post, I think you lose the focus and direction that clear storytelling needs. And I fear that could do the craft of filmmaking more harm than good.
