Lytro Illum shifts the focus on photography

The new Lytro camera lets you refocus after you shoot, Netflix plans to increase its price, and a new appliance makes it possible brew beer at home from concentrate.

CNET Update keeps it in focus:


In this episode of Update, learn about Lytro's Illum camera that can change the focus of a photo after you've snapped the picture. The company is targeting professional photographers, but the Illum isn't the only way to have post-focus fun. The Google Camera app offers a similar editing feature, as does the HTC One M8 smartphone. If you rather not dish out $1,600 for the Illum, Lytro still sells its first camera model, the Light Field, for $200.

Also in today's video: Prepare for Netflix to charge $1 or $2 more each month, and brew your own beer at home with the latest kitchen appliance from Sparkling Drink Systems.
