Lytro camera software now ready for Windows users
Mac-only no more, the new desktop software lets Windows users get in on the refocusing fun.
If you've been holding off on buying the Lytro light-field camera because you're a Windows user, you can now get out your credit card. The revolutionary little camera that lets you shoot first and focus later can now be used with both Mac and Windows computers.
When the camera started shipping in March, the desktop software required to offload and process the camera's "living pictures" required Mac OS 10.6.6 or higher. A Windows 7 64-bit version of the same desktop software is now available for download.
Of course, the software doesn't do anything without the camera, which will still set you back $399 for an 8GB model and $499 for 16GB (though shipping is free to celebrate the Windows software). And while you're at it, you might as well pick up the new $19.99 tripod mount (there isn't one built into the camera). A wall charger was announced, too, but if you've already got one for a micro-USB cable, you're set.
