A new way to capture your stories
The invention of photography gave us the power to capture our most beautiful, tragic and thought-provoking moments. But traditional cameras only capture part of a story. What if we could look deeper? What if we could tell the full story of a moment captured in time?
Now, with a single exposure from Lytro ILLUM, you can adjust aperture, use selective focus, tilt, focus spread, animation and even 3D to differentiate yourself with multiple deliverables.
The many ways to tell your story.
In addition to exporting your images as JPG, TIFF and light field RAW files, you can also share your light field pictures as Living Pictures, custom animations, in 3D, or as traditional 2D images.
