If You Haven’t Seen This… Lytro: Pretty Interesting Image Manipulation

Thoughts on Brusimm logo - Opinion on News and Current EventsI don’t know if you’ve heard of this, but I’ve been shown something very very cool that looks like, if the tech goes mainstream,  could literally change the world of photographic imagery, or at the least, image mastery and post processing.

It’s called LYTRO or the tech inside what’s called a Light Field Camera. It uses light to distill images into something much more than a regular image, beyond what photographers consider to be RAW images.

This is a new technology that could very well change the field of photography forever. This, I think, is akin to when film was invented to store images and goes beyond the tech of digital imagery that replaced film.  It takes the artist out of the photo taking and puts the artist into the photo post-processor. Or it could remove the artistic experts in the industry all together when the general masses start to get a hold of this tech.

So take a moment and check out this new image technology where, no matter where you click, the image comes into focus at that point.  Obviously these images have all the data necessary to refocus or zoom, no matter where you click, but I think its pretty cool.

There’s more after the break…
