Camera producer Lytro is now taking pre-orders for its much-hyped light-field cameras that offer to let you take a picture and refocus it later on your pc or the digital cameras touch screen.
Unlike common cameras, Lytro products are able to take 11 thousand lighting light (11 megarays) and record areas of lighting such as color, power and direction, some of which common cameras overlook.
The ability to take all that information, along with help from Lytro's graphic control program, is what allows you to refocus the graphic, change the image's point of view and even view the image as a 3D graphic on your 3D HDTV.
Although pre-orders are going now, the Lytro cameras won't be returning at some point for the vacations, delivery in beginning 2012 instead. And House windows users might be frustrated at start as Lytro program is currently appropriate with Mac pcs managing OS X 10.6, Ideal Leopard or increased. Prices begins at $400.
