But the first iteration of the Lytro isn’t quite there yet: it’s hard to use, its display is terrible, and outside of a few particular situations its photos aren’t good enough to even be worth saving. It’s not even close to being able to replace an everyday camera, and at $399-$499, for most people it would have to.
Lytro is the camera based on new technology that lets you focus the picture after you take the shot. I’m definitely improving as a photographer, but I have my share of out of focus shots. Digital photography has a number of advantages over conventional photography, but one of the biggest appeals is that you can fix so many issues after you take the picture. The Lytro appears to add incorrect focus to the list. However, it sounds like the technology just isn’t there yet to replace something like a dSLR.
