Lytro light field camera now compatible with Windows 7
The light-field camera Lytro now supports the 64-bit versions of the Windows 7 operating system (Windows 7 Home, Professional, and Ultimate). Windows XP, Windows Vista and the 32-bit versions of Windows 7 are not compatible with Lytro’s desktop software that’s required to process and edit pics captured by the camera. Earlier, the software only worked with the Macs.
As a special limited period offer, the shipping charges on ordering Lytro have been waived off. The 16GB model of Lytro with which 750 pictures can be shot costs $499. The price of the 8GB camera (350 pictures) is $399.
Features of the Lytro camera
A unique feature of the Lytro camera is that you can shoot first and focus later. The camera captures the entire light field instead of just a single plane of light. This technology allows users to focus on an area of an image after it has been shot. Lytro has an 8X optical zoom lens. But unlike traditional cameras, Lytro doesn’t have an auto-focus motor. Pictures taken through Lytro provide an interactive control to viewers without the need of any special software.
So, get the Lytro camera, shoot pics, process them on your Windows 7 PC, and share them with friends and family.
