It's official: Lytro is expected to make its Canadian debut this weekend. The planned launch date exclusively in Canada is online at Futureshop.ca on Saturday, October 13, 2012.

 

Lytro is revolutionary in the digital cameras category and deserving of the praise its receiving from international media and the consumer electronics industry. It was designed as an easy-to-use, lightweight, pocked-sized camera that eliminates those annoying, blurry and out-of-focus shots by capturing the entire field of light when photos are taken, allowing users to focus any area of the photo afterwards. The photos become "living" images after they are uploaded through Lytros software and can be easily manipulated to focus on any area of the photo with a click of a mouse.

 

Here's a short summary of how Lytro's tech works (courtesy of DSLR Studio):

Also, here's an example of one photo taken with a Lytro camera with different focal points:

For more details on why Lytro is amazing, check out my buddy Graham Williams blog post about them here.

 

I can already see Lytro on the top of many wish lists this holiday. But why wait for jolly St. Nick, when you get it first at select Future Shop stores across Canada, or online with free shipping?

The Lytro light field camera doesn't just shoot photos, it captures living images - photos that you can refocus even after you've captured them. Instead of a flat 2D image, the Lytro records the entire light field - all the light rays that travel in all directions through the scene. The result is photos where you can focus on different areas, just by clicking or tapping on them.
