Cameras you should know about.

#ballcamera #lytro #5D #iphone4s

So here are a couple of cool new cameras at some point in their production stage whether its completed and released or just a concept design.

Arguably the most amazing camera ever made... ever. The Lytro. it uses some fancy technology involving lenses and shit. They apparently capture the entire light spectrum, all light travelling in all directions that the lens can see. The most impressive part however is that you don't have to choose a point of focus, when you are later editing the photos, you can choose anywhere on the photo to be your point of focus. The only down side of all this seems to be that they sacrifice resolution for focus. For a better explanation of the awesomeness of this little hand held camera go here. Unfortunately no video for this one.

Update - i found some of the photos taken with the Lytro, click on the image once to choose where you want the focus to be, twice to zoom. 

secondly are two cameras that are already available, the new Canon 5D vs an iPhone 4S.

It's pretty spectacular what you can do with a mobile phones camera now days, unfortunately you can't use lenses.

And finally the throwable panoramic ball camera. This is a stills camera, i don't imagine it would be very useful for video. I can't wait for it to have a commercial release, so every time i go to a tourist destination everyone is staring up at the sky trying to catch their ball camera instead of at whatever it was they actually came to see.
