Lytro Light Field Camera

The much-talked-about Lytro Light Field camera will be available in the US through,, and starting October 9th. The Lytro camera captures all the light traveling in every direction in a scene, giving photographers the ability to refocus the image after it's been taken. The result turns out to be what the company calls a "living picture" that can be focused and refocused, and shared online. The camera was first introduced six month ago and now is  available in three colors and priced at $399 for an 8GB model and $499 for one with 16GB storage.
