Perspective Shift allows Lytro photographers to interactively change the point of view in a picture after it has been taken. On a computer or mobile device, both the photographer and viewers can move the living picture in any direction; left, right, up, down and all around. When pictures with Perspective Shift are shared to the web, Facebook and Twitter, friends can experience Perspective Shift without needing any special software. Perspective Shift works on any light field pictures previously taken with a Lytro camera and with any new light field pictures.

In addition to Perspective Shift, Lytro is also introducing Living Filters. These interactive filters respond to every click of your mouse to show off your unique style and imagination. Lytro photographers will be able to apply one of nine interactive filters, including Film Noir, Crayon, and Carnival, to their living pictures to change the look of the picture based on light field depth.

Both Perspective Shift and Living Filters will be available to camera owners starting on December 4th as a free Lytro Desktop update. Lytro cameras are on sale now for delivery before Thanksgiving with overnight shipping.
