TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2022

BEST IMAGING INNOVATION

Lytro Illum

The LYTRO ILLUM “light field” camera is a unique imaging platform that is driven by software that enables a selection of the depth of field of an image after exposure is made, ranging from what would be achieved by using f/1 to f/16 during exposure. Users adjust a slider in software post exposure to choose whatever focusing effect they desire. For example, using the latest software update – Desktop 4.2 – photographers could capture multiple subjects in focus at f/16 and a background blur as if the exposure were made at f/1. Native RAW file format images can be shared as playable video animations or exported in JPG, TIFF, 3D and MP4. New innovations and expanded video applications are being explored by the company, and TIPA members consider this a fascinating development and exciting work in progress.
