Lytro’s 755 megapixel Camera captures RAW 40K at 300fps light field video

Sharing is Awesome!

The Last time you heard of a powerful camera consists of
50MP or might be 100MP? How about a 755MP Camera shocking? Well Recently, Lytro
debuted “the world’s first Light Field solution for film and television,” a
755MP cinema camera monster.

You read that number right. The tech essentially uses data
on all of the available light in a photo to separate objects by depth and store
them in a three-dimensional grid. In the future this technology will allow the
simple creation of VR-ready navigable 3D spaces, but right now it’s enabling
filmmakers the ability to achieve a level of detail and flexibility in
gathering shots and making post-production edits that wasn’t previously possible.
This camera captures a mind-blowing amount of data. At 755
megapixels of RAW 40K resolution and 300fps, the camera boasts “the highest
resolution video sensor ever designed” and captures as much as 400 gigabytes of
data per second from the world around it.

Now filmmakers and VFX artists will be able to do things in
post-production that were previously impossible: pull focus, change frame rate,
alter depth of field and dynamic range, and even do away with the ubiquitous
green screen because every pixel contains mountains of data.
This camera is essentially military-grade technology, so
Lytro is initially working on getting this camera in filmmakers’ hands when
they need it rather than selling the entire solution to studios. Lytro says
rental packages start at $125k for utilizing the Cinema hardware/software
suite.
