Pros: Camera looks sexy! Ability to refocus and shift perspective are cool. There are both autofocus and manual focus options. Fixed aperture of 2 with the ability to adjust DoF on the computer is fun. Picture quality is decent when shot in optimal light, but low resolution. Great Lens with excellent range and quality and super macro 1:3!
Bottons are well placed. Large, bright and very functional touch screen and it articulates for optimal viewing. Menus are intuitive. You could even toggle the zoom and focus rings. You can reprogram almost all buttons to do various actions. USB 3. The software that comes with it allows adjustment of DoF.
Cons: Despite the sexy looks, camera felt cheap and flimsy in my hands. The zoom and focus rings wobble on my camera and have gaps between the rings and the lens body. Refocussing ability is NOT infinite and one should NOT expect it to be. Perspective shift is simply a hype.
There was so much effort at reinventing the wheel in its body design, that many times they ended up with an irregular oval. For a start, the strap design is annoying. Memory card compartment door is flimsy. Lens hood actually scratches the lens body. And cap doesn't click in easily.
Ultimately, it is the picture quality that determines if this is a good camera or not. Low light performance is appalling. When shot with the optimal light, the pictures are decent. Although the ISO goes up to 3200, it is unusable above 800. Say goodbye to indoor photography without a flash!Read more ›
This is an amazing device that opens a window into a new way to think about photographs. Due to "old dog/new tricks" issues, this window is still pretty hazy for me right now, but I can see wonderful things over on the other side.
The equipment is well built, sturdy, has a great lens system, and absolutely works as advertised.
The three bad things are:
1) The final, effective, what-you-end-up-with-in-the-end resolution of images in 2D is not anything like what I'm used to. On the other hand, for me to compare resolution from such a young technology like this to images taken with $20k worth of a equipment developed over 20 years that includes a 500 mm lens, instant autofocus, taking 12 frames a second with a 30 megapixel full frame sensor, seems a bit unfair. I'm told by Lytro that the camera has a "4MB max output resolution", which is probably about what the old exposed film images of yesteryear had. Since there are some really great images from the pre-digital age, this tells me that the problem is not the camera, but the skill of the photographer.
2) There are several small technical glitches in the camera, software, and website that are a tad annoying but don't affect the actual camera operation. When you think about the number of completely new areas this camera system had to pioneer, the number and level of problems seems small. In a twisted way for me this turns around into a plus because every time I ask a question or point out a problem, a nice young man named Adam at Lytro carefully studies what I say, reproduces the problem, speaks to some geeks in the back room, then comes back to me with the solution/resolution they have worked out and an estimate of when they will be able to implement the change.Read more ›
For myself I'm a Producer at a TV station and have a background in documentaries. Over the past few months I've been posting the photos(mostly NFL games) to the site of my television station and my blog on Huffington Post. In general the response has been very positive. People can see the pics on our website and it's content that we can give our viewers that's completely different from the competition.
I started shooting on film when I was in the seventh grade. Back then photography was chemical baths and dark rooms and not too many other students were in the class, well stuck with it for so long by high school it was just me three other students and a volunteer parent. It was quiet and the there were not too many of us. Now everyone w/ a cell phone is a photographer and most people have an DSLR. Which is great! I love all the photographs being shot now. They are absolutely beautiful. The problem I've been facing is when everyone is shooting on the same EOS camera, how can you make yourself unique as a photographer? That's why I really love this camera. It's completely unique and allows me to take photos that no one else can take. Also the camera is very stable. The flexible screen is really nice especially when getting low angle shots.Read more ›
