You know how it goes: you take a photo, it looks fine on your camera's LCD screen, but when you finally download it on your computer, the large screen makes it obvious it's terribly out of focus.
Well, apparently this doesn't happen with the weirdly-shaped Lytro Camera. It lets you take photos without worrying about focusing because everything in the photo can be focused -- and unfocussed after you take the picture.
As they explain on the site:
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. Focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture. You can refocus your pictures at anytime.
And focusing after the fact, means no auto-focus motor. No auto-focus motor means no shutter delay. So, capture the moment you meant to capture not the one a shutter-delayed camera captured for you.
