Lytro's revolutionary Cinema camera provides radical new post-production capabilities

Lytro's light field cameras haven't proven themselves to be huge sellers in the consumer market, but the technology might be set to revolutionize professional cinematography. Lytro's new Cinema camera captures every frame as a set of light field data; each pixel contains not only luminance and color information, but details on speed, location and direction. Editors can thus set focus, aperture and shutter speed any way they want afterwards during post production. They can also map the scene instantly in 3D for effects compositing, cut out certain depth layers as if everything else is a virtual green screen, and even move the camera a little if the shot's not quite right.
