Some photos capture more than the visual aspect, they go beyond the scenic and capture the imagination of the person behind the lens. Whether you are one of those who has been dreaming to embark on creating your photo tales but remain overwhelmed with the so called sophistication around the DIY or more formally known Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera range, or you might be the one who believes that you might not be able to exert yourself beyond push of a button with a point and shoot digital still camera (DSC), this read should help you in making your pick.

With its simple, rectangular form factor, the Lytro looks more ready to bestow the user with a half-dozen Oreo cookies than a totally new kind of photography. The Lytro is the world’s first consumer light-field camera. Unlike conventional models, a light-field camera captures all the light information from all the rays in its field of view — not just color and intensity, but direction as well. The method has a number of novel applications, the most publicized being photos that the viewer can focus after the fact.
