Easy Light Field Camera FREE

Easy Light Field Camera FREE


Shoot first, focus later! Capture an image with one click of a button and focus on the foreground or background later in the viewer by swiping up and down on the picture! The pictures are taken and shown in 1280x960.

ATTENTION: Works on LG Optimus Black, Speed; Newer HTC Models, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S, S2 should work, but not tested.

If you don't know what a light field camera is, search for it on the web.
Of course your device is not a real light field camera and this app can't replace one, but it simulates the effect of taking one photo and focusing later... it's the Dirty Harry of photography (shoot first, the rest follows...)

Easy to use:

-Take a photo of a near object (I tried it with objects about max. 25 cm / 10 inches away) with a nice background, distance depends on the macro autofocus function of your device...
- tap screen or press volume buttons or camera button if you happen to have one, hold the device still for some seconds!
- after several seconds the image is saved
- click on it in the image gallery
- swipe up and down to change focus plane back or forward
- menu button to export or delete image

Free version: can save up to 20 pictures, contains ads
Full version: no ads, unlimited saving

If the app doesn't work as intended: tell me your device type. This is the first version, I don't expect it to work on enery device in the world.

Recent changes:
1.1: bugfix, now the free version can save 30 images, stricter app manifest to represent the functions needed for this app. If the macro autofocus is not available on your device, taking photos will not work

Only 2 Pics R Taken. One's with flashlight and another isn't. Unfortunately unacceptable!

Dear Jeremy... That's right, as I've exactly noted in the app description, this is not a real light field camera and can't replace the real experience, this is technically impossible on a phone camera. BUT: it's the only camera on the market that takes different focus planes with one keypress and you can choose the focused plane (background or foreground) afterwards, which is exactly what the light field camera does (of course the app has to take 2 shots and the light field camera only takes one, which makes this app unsuitable for moving objects. You also have to hold the device still) There will be a better version on "Ice Cream Sandwich", on 2.2 a better focusing method as the one used here is not possible.

Um.... Takes two pictures. This isn't a light field camera. Lame. At least the price is right...
