The Lytro camera is the first consumer camera that records the entire light field-all the rays of light traveling in every direction through a scene-instead of a flat 2D image. Shoot first, focus later By capturing the light field, you can do incredible things. Like refocus pictures after you take them. This also means that the Lytro camera has no autofocus-and none of the shutter delay that comes with it. Do more than tell a story. Recreate it. Refocus to discover new elements within the scene and move the picture in any direction to change your point of view with Perspective Shift. Use Living Filters to create a unique look. Now every picture you take is a chance to tell a new kind of story. Grip Made from precision-tooled silicone, the grip is easy to hold. Shutter Button The Lytro camera has no auto-focus - and none of the shutter delay that comes with it. Lens An 8x optical zoom lens with a constant f/2 aperture offers a wide range of creative shots. Touchscreen You control most of the camera functions with a tap or a swipe. And the backlit display lets you compose, review, and refocus your pictures. Light field sensor We joined a micro-lens array to a digital image sensor to capture the color, intensity, and direction of light entering the camera - 11 million light rays to be precise. Light field engine The light field engine processes the light rays captured by the sensor, so you can view pictures on the screen and refocus them with a tap. Battery Long-life Li-Ion internal battery lets you continue shooting without having to stop for a charge.

That being said I ordered this camera a couple days ago because I've been curious about Light Field Cameras for awhile and Amazon had it at an amazing price. I got it last night and so far I've been a little bit frustrated by it. So, to save you some frustration here is what I ended up doing:
1. Plug it in and forget about for about it overnight. It was 4 hours before it even started to register a charge.
2. Do NOT install the software that comes on the camera
3. Go to www.lytro.com, scroll to the bottom of the page to the gray box and click on Support.
4. In the search box type in "need to download 3.1.1"
The first item under Knowledge Base should be "Lytro Desktop - Need to download 3.1.1?"
Click on it.
5. Select and download the either Windows or Mac software (whichever you use)
6. Install the 3.1.1 Lytro Software on your computer. DO NOT skip ahead to the Desktop 4 software.
7. After you've installed the 3.1.1 software connect the camera to the computer and start the Lytro Desktop software.
8. The software will (I hope) recognize your camera and should inform you that there is a firmware update.
9. Install the firmware
10 After you have installed the firmware update you may install the Lytro Desktop 4 software if you want.
Lytro Desktop 4 would not recognize my camera or the photos taken with it because it needed a firmware update. The software that came with the camera would not do a firmware update. So after installing and uninstalling software and then chasing around Lytro's Support site for about an hour this morning I was able to update the camera's firmware using Lytro Desktop 3.1.1 and then update the Desktop software to 4.
As for a review of the actual Light Field Camera I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I thought I'd post this in case someone else has the same frustrations as I did and doesn't think to check Lytro's support site.
If you're looking for a point and shoot camera and not a Light Field Camera I love my Nikon COOLPIX P530. As soon
The good things:
* Camera is lightning fast to start up (practically instantaneously).
* Fairly easy to use controls (note: zoom is on the silicone above the screen, not the screen itself).
* Updates for the software and camera firmware installed easily and quickly.
* Interesting shape and gets people curious when you are taking pictures.
* Software has features for adjustment, playback, and even 3D (red/cyan, or double picture).
The bad things:
* Even on optimal sunny outdoor shots, a lot of pictures still didn't turn out well. There is a bit of bleeding between shadows and light, some of the eyes of of my subjects would turn into blobs. Pictures still look soft.
* Indoor shots and outdoor dusky shots yielded grainy photos.
* Perspective with trees is messy. This can be understood as tree branches do not line up uniformly in a plane.
* The vast majority of the pictures you take don't even come close to what is seen on the Lytro website. Don't be fooled since those photographers have probably set everything "perfect" for a good Lytro type shot. I still don't know how they got such good resolution on those pictures as the resolution on my pictures seem like they were taken with a 1 MP camera from last decade...
* Lytro turtorials and products are centered on the Illum. This product is practically forgotten already.
* The lens cap is neat, but the magnet is too weak and it keeps on falling off when you put it in your pocket.
In the end, I, like many others on Amazon who have reviewed this camera, feel underwhelmed. I haven't decided if I should return this camera or keep it as a "toy"... a curiosity item. Maybe the Illum is much better since it seems to have about 4x the "resolution" according to their website.
I have several cameras (Canon 5D MII, Canon Elan 7, Canon AE 1, Canon EOS M) and several lenses... and if you want to buy this camera, don't think to print the pictures from Lytro (or maybe can you print with a little post process like onOne Perfect Resize software), but you can use this camera to learn Photographic Composition, with excellent results... another interesting thing is you have the option to use this camera in Manual Mode (Speed, ISO, and a real ND Filter included in this camera).
For sure this camera is not for all people, if you want to use this camera to print photos... this camera is not for you... but if you want to challenge your mind with another photos and explore your creativity... this is for you!!!

El empaque de lo mejor, ya no usan "cacahuates" para que el producto no sufra maltrato, usan un ingenioso platificado que no permite que se mueva ni un milimetro el paquete interior, *****
La camara, bonita, hermosa!., un poco dificil de entender su funcionamiento, no su operación, es decir, acostumbrarse a tomar la foto sin ningun tipo de enfoque y despues enfocar, hace corto circuito en la mente.
