The Lytro camera captures the entire light field, which is all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space. Since you’ll capture the color, intensity, and direction of all the light, you can experience the first major light field capability - focusing after the fact . Thus you can focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture after the fact.  And focusing after the fact, means no auto-focus motor or shutter delay.

The big innovation is basically the camera’s micro lens (pictured). It has hundreds of tiny lenses in it that break up the light before it gets to the image sensor, capturing the direction that the light is traveling in in addition to just getting the sum total of the light. That’s what makes the after-the-fact focus possible. It’s basically capturing the geometric data about the direction light is traveling and using that to re-build the scene. The other end is software, both in the camera and when it’s photos are posted online. When you post a photo, it includes the light field engine data, using Flash for desktop and HTML for mobile to let someone focus on different points in the photo.

The Lytro comes in three colors and two models. The blue and graphite models have 8GB of storage and will cost $399, the red model is 16 GB and costs $499.
