Ready for the world’s first consumer light field camera — you know, the spiffy kind that can infinitely focus? After demoing the tech earlier this year, Lytro’s unveiled the world’s first shipping product — a little something it calls the Lytro camera.

It’s instant-on and the rubber back-end wields only two physical buttons: one for shutter and the other for power. The company’s added the ability to change the focus on-camera, a task accomplished via its touchscreen glass display.

It’ll ship in two versions: the $399 8GB flavor can hold 350 pictures, and comes in graphite or blue, followed by a $499 16GB model, which sports an electric-red finish and stores up to 750 images.
