This camera is an expensive child's toy. It's a bulky, rectangular tube, with a lens at one end and a 1" LCD screen on the other. It's awkward to hold and feels very cheap. Basically the idea is to take a picture and then focus it afterwards, using Lytro's software of course. The only thing is that you have to know what you're taking a picture of first in order for this to work. You need at least 2 subjects in your picture, one object/person close to the camera, and the other object/person in the background. This way you can focus on either the closer object or the farther object, using the software after the picture is taken. It becomes very apparent after a short time that this is pretty much the ONLY thing you can do with this camera. It's not to be used to replace your point-and-shoot camera, and Lytro specifies this. The quality of the pictures are roughly about 1MP and look grainy. Don't waste your money. I have already returned this back to Lytro.
