    What's New in the
World of Photography?

Just like all things in technology, photography and photo-related areas are advancing very quickly!

Here are a couple of really
interesting developments we have
been following - we hope you enjoy them!

LYTRO
The first consumer level Light Field Camera - this amazing camera takes a photo with everything in focus allowing you manipulate the focal point in its software. This produces images with different areas in & out of focus.
Very cool - take a look!
   
Add 3D Items to 2D Photos
Kevin Karsch & his team at the University of Illinois have been working on an amazing system that enables you to add 3D objects into a 2D photo. The system does an incredible job rendering the light & shadows making the object seamlessly fit into the existing photo .
See what they are working on - make sure to watch the video!
