Product Information

product description

With the ILLUM Light Field Camera from Lytro you can experience breakthrough photography with the first high-end camera that lets you capture and harness the power of light field, allowing you to create living pictures. Explore focus, perspective, and depth of field in a single picture. Lytro software lets you transform those pictures into cinematic animations that can be experienced on desktop and mobile devices and turned into 3D at the touch of a button.

Lytro ILLUM’s 40 Megaray customised sensor, with Lytro’s patented microlens array technology, unlocks the ability to capture the colour, intensity and direction of the light rays flowing into the camera. This allows you to create imagery on a truly experiential canvas.

By capturing and harnessing the power of light field, photographers can portray not just a cross-section of reality, but an authentic, interactive window into their world. Lytro ILLUM’s powerful in-camera software provides real-time feedback allowing for dramatic composition of every shot. During image capture, an interactive depth feedback display shows the relative focus of all objects in the frame, allowing composition in three dimensions. A real-time, colour-coded overlay of the live view lets you know which elements of the picture are within the refocusable range. The incredibly versatile 8x optical zoom 30-250mm equivalent focal lens with a constant f/2.0 aperture and 1:3 macro lets you take a wide range of shots without ever having to change your lens.
