(WXYZ) - Some are calling it a picture revolution; a 3D camera that allows you to focus and zoom after you take the shot.
The camera that says it takes "living pictures" is called Lytro and the science behind it is light field technology developed by Stanford Ph. D., Ren Ng.
Like always, you point and click, except with Lytro there is no waiting for the camera to focus, the photo is taken instantly.
The fun really starts when you pull the digital image up on your screen and start to edit in an infinite number of ways.
But instead of attempting to justify the new technology with words, we thought we'd just let you click around in the interactive photo gallery below.
(Click to focus. Double click to zoom.)
In addition to the focus feature, Lytro will also give consumers the ability to view and edit their photos in 3D with the use of a special computer screen.
Lytro says the camera will hit shelves in late 2011 and the cost will be comparable to other consumer-priced digital cameras.
For the complete interactive photo gallery and for more information on Lytro you can visit their website .
