Lytro, an innovative “light field” camera company, has just added the “Perspective Shift “ and the “Living Filters” feature to their arsenal. The Perspective Shift allows the photographer to interactively change the point of view in a picture after it has been taken. In other words the viewer can move the picture in any direction; left, right, up, down and all around. The effect can also be viewed on social networks like Facebook and Twitter without the need of any special software. Perspective Shift works retroactively on any light field pictures previously taken with a Lytro camera. For the Living Filters feature, photographers will be able to apply one of nine interactive filters, including Film Noir, Crayon, and Carnival, to their living pictures to change the look of the picture based on light field depth.
