Innovation in photography

Have you heard of Lytro? This new consumer camera is, In my view, the most dramatic innovation in photography, since adding a lens to the camera-obscura*. It’s the first one to capture a Light Field by measuring the amount of light traveling in every direction through every point in space and by that expanding dynamically the range of fucus. if you haven’t seen it yet, take a pick at the sample pictures in this link, on the linked page, click the area of the picture you’d like to focus on: It is a true revolution.

This is not an ad nor a recommendation to buy this product, It doesn’t seem to be ready for the professional print market yet, and still, I would love to play with one.
