Standard cameras capture a single plane of light. The Lytro Light Field Camera takes an unusual approach to photography by capturing 11 million light rays with its light field sensor – all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space. This eliminates the need for a focusing motor which also means no shutter delay. The result? Stunning photographs that can be refocused on any point in the picture. The Lytro has an 8x optical zoom, constant f/2 lens and comes in two models: 16GB for $499 and 8GB for $399.

It remains to be seen how competitors like Canon, Nikon, and Sony respond to Lytro’s awesome new innovation.
