Germany-based Raytrix introduces what they claim is the first plenoptic camera series in the market, stealing the thunder from other companies interested in developing their own, including Adobe and even Lytro.

A plenoptic camera, also known as light-field camera, uses a microlens array to capture 4D light field information about the photograph’s subject. This data can be used to improve the solution of computer graphics-related problems.

The cameras range from the entry-level Raytrix R5 that shoots photos at one megapixel, to the high-end R11 (pictured) that captures images at three megapixels. These cameras allow users to choose focus points in post-processing and even capture 3D images with just a single sensor. The company can even convert any existing digital cameras into a plenoptic camera by creating a lens array for it, which usually takes 6 to 8 weeks.

Raytrix currently ships their plenoptic cameras only by request on its website; even its prices are by inquiry as well. How we wish this technology would be available in consumer cameras.
