Lytro released its first light field camera two years ago. Now its new-generation camera called Illum has been announced. Curious? Let’s go on checking its new features.
The Illum is a high-end light field camera designed to provide you a free way to change the focus on your photo. Compared with its first-generation light field camera, the Illum features a more professional design that makes it like a full-frame DSLR camera, while the futuristic body and unique Light Field Engine 2.0 makes Illum stand out among various cameras. The Illum comes with a 40-megapixel custom sensor with Lytro’s patented microlens array technology, an 8x optical zoom 30-250mm equivalent focal lens with a constant f/2.0 aperture and 1:3 macro in order to provide a high quality imaging. Moreover, its powerful Light Field Engine 2.0 not only captures the whole light field in a scene, but offers 3D effect on your works. Apart from that, other specs include external shutter release port, hot shoe, tripod mount, removable battery, SD card slot, and a state-of-the-art 4″ touchscreen.
The Illum light field camera has been available for preorder for $1,499 USD. If you’re interested, jump to Lytro official site for full description.
