Light Field camera | Lytro

That is the idea behind Lytro, a fairly new startup that just received a pile of funding and thus a bunch of press.   The idea is a new point and shoot built around an entirely different camera sensor that gathers much more information and through their software(and facebook app) allows you to select the point of focus after you have taken the photo. I have to admit that it seems a bit gimicky – Only built into a point and shoot where often most of the scene is in focus and providing an app for friends and family to play with the focus point. But, the promise of this technology in say 5 years is quite exciting – built into ALL cameras, no waiting for focus, just snap the photo and having the ability to choose focus point in camera or post processing and output that as a normal image!! Now that gets me excited. But would you call it cheating? I Would love to hear your thoughts.

Spend a few moments playing on the Lytro site – The have samples that let you change the focus point.

 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance.
