All of us were quite excited when Lytro light field camera was introduced in the market. The one thing which was found lacking was Windows desktop support for this camera. The company has acted on it. They are finally launching Windows Desktop software for Lytro cameras now. We have earlier seen the influence of the Lytro software in several other platforms. Earlier this camera could only work with Mac based desktops, now with Windows support, the camera is sure to find many more users across the world.
With this new Lytro Desktop Application, PC owners can come across a new way of capturing and experiencing images. The PCs should have some minimum specs to work with this new software. These minimum hardware requirements in the desktop for this software to work are:
- 64 bit version of the Home, Professional, or Ultimate operating platforms
- The processor must be Intel Core 2 Duo or high end versions.
- RAM capacity should be a minimum of 2GB, and it would be better if it is more.
- The DirectX 10 graphics is also a major factor for the efficient working of this camera software.
To improve the overall photography experience, Lytro is putting forward a couple of accessories, as well. A new Tripod Mount which assists in steadying the shot and a USB Wall Charger for reducing charge time by 30% are the new accessories. They are made available at a comfortable price tag of around Rs. 1,000/-. The price tag of the camera models are still justifiable at a range of around Rs. 20,000/- to Rs. 25,000/-. We can look forward to more such useful innovative packages and features from Lytro to enhance the overall photographic treat.
