The LYTRO ILLUM and the Future Possibilities of Lytro Video

The Lytro Illum is the long anticipated camera that brings light-field technology to a professional level. Light field technology allows you to precisely choose your desired focus point in post production so there’s no need to focus on your lens. Sam Tellman also talked to us about the possibilities of Lytro video in the future.

The amazing thing about the Lytro Illum is that this camera is no more a toy, but now gives you full creative possibilities that we have never before seen in photography.

Sam Tellman elaborated how Lytro Video may soon revolutionise the way we shoot video. Not only would there be no more need for focusing, but also things like slight changes in perspective and single sensor 3D would become a reality. Just think about the possibilities like enabling the viewer to decide where to focus when he watches a movie instead of the clumsy way 3D currently works. This technology may very well revolutionise the way we watch movies making their brainwash power even more effective. Yay.

The Lytro Illum is available for pre-order and it will arrive at the end of September and cost $1.599 (including the F/2.0 lens).

The better possibility is not having to roto to get mattes for VFX. You should be able to pull a ZDepth from this almost like Deep compositing. This would change the way we work, and its the first thing I thought when seeing the first Lytro. Lytro Video would be amazing.

While I’m generally interested in seeing this technology evolve I doubt it will revolutionize the way we watch films. Every attempt to put “more possibilities” into the viewer’s hand has proven superfluous so far. Most people still consume stories linear and passively, and I guess it will remain that way.
