Reviews Lytro
4.2
RCT SCORE

RealClear Summary


Lytro is an entirely new spin on the digital camera. Rather than focusing before you snap the shutter, Lytro allows you to focus, on anything, after the image has already been captured. Now, all your images have changeable focus-points - something you can't achieve in a typical digital camera. As you can see, it has a unique design and isn't cheap compared with ordinary digital cameras. While noting its revolutionary aspect, most reviewers told readers to skip the Lytro due to the drawbacks common to first generation products.
