Light field cameras that Lytro has sold in the past are truly fascinating. The second generation of Lytro’s camera is here though. The Lytro Illum looks like a tool ready for some serious action. The first Lytro was very interesting but the design was not attractive to everyone. The Lytro Illum looks quite sleek and has a 40-megaray light sensor with an 8x optical zoom.
For those of you not familiar with Lytro products, these cameras allow you to capture a ton of information every time you press the shutter button and change focus/perspective/depth of field after you have taken your photos. The Illum will cost $1499 (introductory price).
