Convergence, Lytro and Thoughts About New Technology and Capturing the “Decisive Moment”
If my dog could hold a camera and press the shutter-release, she would still have a hard time shooting as well as Henri, but when you take a close look at some of the photography innovations headed our way, you have to wonder…
I was reading in the New York Times on Tuesday about the Lytro camera that is under development by a small Silicon Valley start-up created by 31 year old Ren Ng. If you haven’t heard about the Lytro yet, it is a camera that captures enough light data from different angles to let the user adjust the focus in software to any point in the captured image after it is taken. Put more simply, it means that the photographer doesn’t have to worry about focus, since the focus can be adjusted later. Not only does this alleviate the stress of capturing sharp images, it opens up a world of creative possibilities that the photographer can control in post production. Consider matching this technology with a video camera like the Red Epic.
