The Lytro camera is truly a revolution in photography. This new type of camera takes “living pictures” that allows you to refocus a picture AFTER you have taken the picture. This means you can change the depth of field post production. If you’ve ever taken an out of focus picture , you know what a BIG DEAL this is.[vimeo https://vimeo.com/37336723]
Yes, I want one. But I’m short the $399-$499 to get started.
But I do have a couple of bucks…and I would like to experiment with this kind of photography.
Enter FocusTwist. A 2$ iPhone app that re-focuses photos like a $400 Lytro.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02WPtNuKfo0]
It’s not perfect, and it’s best if you use a tripod. But it is SUPER cool. AND it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
