It looks like no other camera, because it is like no other camera. The Lytro Immerge VR Camera is the latest creative tool from the light field specialists and uses a globe-like array to capture immersive video. Because the camera captures both depth data and light ray data, it’s able to recreate the scene from a number of angles, letting viewers move side to side, up and down, and forwards and backwards as they watch, and lets editors seamlessly blend in CG elements with pinpoint precision. This pro-level technology requires a pro-level rig, so the camera comes with a dedicated server to process and manage footage, its own editing software, and playback software that works with most VR headsets.
