expiredDaily Deals: Lytro ILLUM Light Field Camera $335, Logitech MFi PowerShell Controller for iPhone 5/5s $10, more

In today’s Daily Deals, we have from Electronics.Woot the Lytro ILLUM 40 Megaray Light Field Camera for $330 + $5 shipping. That’s 79% off the original list price, $70 less than Amazon and the lowest we’ve seen by $55.

“Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing your average static 2D image. But the Illum’s cutting-edge technology records the direction of these rays, generating images you can later refocus, change perspective within, or view in 3D. You can essentially revisit the scene of the photo—meaning you’ll never miss snapping the perfect shot again.” Rated 3.3/5 stars from Amazon customers.
