“The point-and-shoot camera has just been reinvented.” Lytro, the much-anticipated first creation of a Silicon Valley start-up, looks nothing like your grandfather’s Kodak and allows you to adjust the focus of a picture long after you’ve taken it. Lytro’s secret? It captures “more, and different, information about the light hitting its lens than other cameras do.” Upload the images to a computer and you can choose where they should be clear and where blurry. Because Lytro doesn’t yet have a flash or allow cropping, “buyers should consider it a second camera,” for now. Still, it marks “an exciting leap” in digital photography.
