Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

Lytro Unlock - Making a bad camera slightly better

I’ve recently spent some time playing with and reverse engineering this curious piece of tech that was a first consumer oriented,though odd looking, lightfield camera called Lytro. Killer feature of this new technology was the ability to refocus the image after it was taken! The bad side was that the software was pretty bad, the camera was trying to solve a problem that didn’t exist and the whole endeavor mostly failed.

This project documents and implements a python library that unlocks and makes available a few interesting features that weren’t ever made available through official software. Lytro Unlock - Making a bad camera slightly better
