“Our goal is to forever change the way people take and experience pictures“ (Ren Ng)
This – translated to German – is the headline for Lytro’s press conference invitation, which we just received a few minutes ago. In short, the Lytro Light Field Camera finally comes to Europe, and the German-speaking area.

Lytro’s LightField Camera is currently officially available in 5 countries (plus India, inofficially?), but it’s not easy to get in Europe.
This weekend, however, online bargain store QoQa is exclusively offering the 8 GB models “electric blue” and “graphite” to customers in France and Belgium, for 399 Euros plus shipping.
The weekend offer ends Sunday, April 7, at midnight CEST.

Lytro’s LightField Camera has arrived in its 6th country: Online retailer Snapdeal has launched the three original models of the camera (Red Hot 16 GB, Electric Blue 8 GB and Graphite 8 GB) in the world’s second-most populous country for the exorbitant price of 47,999 (894 USD) and 39,999 Rs (745 USD), respectively. Online shop Firangi Bhai is selling the 8 GB models Electric Blue, Graphite and Sea glass for 35,500 Rs (662 USD) each.
Lytro hasn’t included India in their Where to Buy list, so we’re wondering whether this is an official expansion of their international distribution.
