Engadget Review

Lytro's debut camera only shines when taking well-lit pictures with multiple focus layers, but the technology is promising, and we suspect it's only a matter of time before all cameras work this way.

Pros
  • Refocuses images after the factStellar build quality.Simple but intuitive UI
Cons
  • Low resolution (~1MP) capturesPoor screenIffy low-light performanceNo Windows-compatible software yet
