Lytro have released a camera that lets you capture 'living pictures' you can endlessly refocus after you've taken them. Unlike conventional cameras, the Lytro light field camera captures all the rays of light in a scene, making the ability to focus a picture after it’s taken a reality. The camera contains a light field engine that allows camera owners to refocus pictures directly on the camera.

The images taken can be shared online as the light field engine, which makes the focusing adjustments possible, travels with each photo. You can see a demonstration of the 'living pictures' here: Lytro

The pocket-sized camera features an 8x optical zoom and f/2 lens. It has just two buttons – power and shutter - and has an intuitive glass touchscreen that lets pictures be viewed and refocused on the camera. It turns on instantly, has an instant shutter and as there's no need to auto-focus, the Lytro has no shutter delays.

The company plan to add 3D capabilities to the camera in 2012.

The Lytro is available in both 8Gb and 16Gb models, in three colours, with a starting price of $399.

You can learn more about the new camera in this video:
