Lytro, a company out of Silicon Valley has introduced a technology that many are considering the largest innovation in photography since the 1800s. Instead of capturing one focal point of light, Lytro captures the entire field around a picture or a process called light field. The result is the ability for photographers togo back and refocus photos after the event, adjust orientations and even translate the images into 3D.
