Lytro Illum

Lytro created a riot when they launched their first Light Field camera
The rectangle-box design was revolutionary at the time , but its customers were
mostly trendy crowds who wanted a unique edge over the standard DSLR/Mirrorless design format
But now , the company is back with a new refresh design and more technology to give
you all the "bokkeh" you want with the new Lytro Illum . First look at the illum shows us
the standard camera like design which now houses the  4" LCD pannel(original one had a 1.5" one) and standard controls which mimic that of a standard mirrorless camera . The camera offers 8x
optical zoom (30-250mm ) and has a constant f2.0 appeture . The Illum also has 1/4000 th of a second shutter speed and a 40Megaray sensor (the sensor captures 40 million rays of light) that contributes for the cameras main highlight feature -refocusing .

 Refocusing the photo is done by calculating the angle at which the light enters the camera and storing that data for later refocusing and other effects giving a 3d effect or creating artistic Bokkeh shots for your viewing pleasure . the Illum is priced at a whooping $1500 which is alot for a camera that is specifically aimed at refocusing effects, but then again ,there is always the option of using desktop editing software ,taking clever photos using Nokia's Refocus appor using a cheaper Lytro-like camera like the one found on the HTC One M8
