Curious about Lytro? Now's the time. Amazon's "Deal of the Day" today is a Lytro Illum 40 Megaray Light Field Camera, marked down from $1,299 to $399. All day or while supplies last.
Collectors, take notice.
The Lytro embodies breakthrough technology developed by Ren Ng and a team at Stanford called Light Field, which allows you to shoot first and select your plane of focus and the amount of depth of field you prefer later. The technology's potential earned widespread publicity and attracted high-level investors. Ng met with Steve Jobs before the latter's death.
The Lytro camera was introduced at $1,599.

Martin: "I researched this camera a couple of months back when I was asked if I could teach someone who had bought one. I read their tutorials, watched their videos and ended up thinking they had taken all the fun out of photography by making it so complicated. I knocked back the teaching gig and am not surprised to hear they aren't selling many."
