What is Lytro Illum and Light Field Photography?
There's just something fascinating about totally new things and we don't mean brand new, but more like new conceptually. And if the concept is new, you may be sure to bet on the fact that it will be unpolished, it will be a little bit rough in its implementation, but at the same time some of its ingenious light will still shine through. According to The Verge, such is the case with Lytro's recent Illum camera. Having been in development for quite some time now, Illum is a light-field photography device. Well, what does that mean? Basically, with an additional in-built array of microlens the camera is able to capture the light-field parameters of the scene. Kind of hard to explain, but if you do seek a hands-on demonstration check out the video above and let us know what you think.
