Lytro Illum Sample Raw Files and Lytro Desktop Feature Examples

Folder contents of an "Editable Living Picture", exported from Illum sample Raw file using Lytro Desktop 4.0 Looking for a RAW light field file recorded by the Lytro Illum? We’ve got you covered!

Mike Miller, proud owner of the Lytro Illum “First Edition” Number 14, has kindly supplied us with some Raw light field files from Lytro’s new flagship product. Mike has also posted a detailed Lytro Illum unboxing report on his blog, so be sure to check that out!
The raw files are about 50 MB each (download link below) and allow you to test the features of Lytro Desktop 4.0, or have a closer look at the file format if that’s your thing.

Update: Please note that these are “Lytro RAW” files (.raw), which only contain the light field data the camera captured, and not the camera’s calibration data, so the image quality in Lytro Desktop necessarily suffers (for details, see here: What is the difference between XRAW and RAW files?). We’ll try to get some XRAW files, which also include calibration data, and post them here.

Update #2: I’ve uploaded many more sample files in the XRAW format over in Lytro Illum: Review after Three Weeks of Testing.

(Mike adds: “All of these [images] are offered with the caveat that the camera is certainly capable of better results. I’m still in the very early stages of learning it’s quirks.”)

To import into Lytro Desktop, choose “File” > “Import” > “Files…” from the main menu, and point the software to the download path of the .lfr sample file. Lytro Desktop then lets you export various aspects, including an editable depth map and an exploded stack file collection (“editable Living Picture”) that you can edit with Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. and later re-imported into Lytro Desktop.

Below, see some examples of quick image adjustments done in the new “Adjustments” pane on the left, and a compilation of all the animation effects currently available under “Animate”.
Finally, some of the image’s metadata which could be exported with Lytro Compatible Viewer, is included at the end of the article.

  1. Thanks Mike & admin for making the raw samples available. The flower sample is illustrative of the Illum’s limitations (or its Desktop 4.0 processing)– try exporting it at “f/16”, and you’ll see a nasty area of ambiguity all around the edge of the center flower.

    The metadata is interesting for revealing some sensor specs
    7728 × 5368 = 41,483,904 “rays”

    • …for an export resolution of 2450 × 1634 = 4,003,300 pixels– an order of magnitude difference.

      I also tried playing with them, but after importing and processing them, there is a warning sign saying I need to pair the Lytro camera used to take this pictures. I guess it needs some calibration info stored in the camera. Did you face the same problem? i’m using version 4.0.0.

    I noticed on my ILLum settings two File formats — under:
    Settings -> File Format — BOTH: LYTRO RAW – and – LYTRO XRAW

    XRAW seems to be double the size of RAW (as it reduces the picture count on a new SD card by half).

    My quick check of the Lytro site didn’t see any mention of XRAW.

    Anyone have any info/experience regarding XRAW ?
