Lytro Illum


The kid gloves are off. Like the original Lytro light field camera, the new Illum camera lets you take pictures and then change where the focus is afterwards. It’s a nice trick that many smartphone makers such as HTC (One M8) and Samsung (Galaxy S5) have quickly tried to emulate with software or hardware.

The main difference between the Illum and its predecessor is that Lytro made it look more like a mirrorless camera this time around. Oh, and there are some major spec bumps. The Illum uses a custom 40-megaray light field sensor. It has an 8x optical zoom (30-250mm equivalent) that works at f/2.0 across its zoom range, 1/4000 of a second high-speed shutter, extreme close-focus macro, articulating 4-inch touchscreen, and a hot shoe that works with all leading flashes.

The pictures do it a little disservice. The Illum measures 86mm x 145mm x 166mm and weighs 940 grams.
