This is neat technology to be able to focus and zoom in onto a picture that had already been taken.... this will solve depth of field issues....

I am going to put on my thinking cap and try to figure it out to adapt to macro and micro photography... got all winter to do so......

I think I am one of the first to apply Lytro imaging to microscopic work.... on the Lytro forum... they are still try to figure out on how to adapt the lytro camera to a microscope... and I am not telling and I had the camera for one day :P .

Another better Light Field camera manufacturer is Raytrix at $30,000 a pop.

Hi Peter,

This is neat stuff and loads of fun. Thanks for posting! I especially like the placoderm image lightfield.

I am having fun John.... the above image was imaged with std rms microscope objective just had a break through in adapting a special monster Industrial Nikon 10/20X microscope objective that has a barrel that is 60mm in diameter to the Lytro unit

OK Peter, are you ready for this now? When I first saw the video I thought it would be a great way to document fossils!

Edit: Oh ya and I remember reading about a new way to build lenses based on optical antennas that you will probably drool over.

This is simply incredible!

Voyager 1, launched 35 years ago and now poised to be the first man-made object to exit the Solar System, has 68 kilobytes of computer memory (and an 8-track tape recorder). Just 35 years later, we have this; the pace of technology is unbelievable!

I think the Lightfield cameras are revolutionary in design.... took Stanford researchers 20yr to see the first commercial production model released last yr.....
