Venture Beat publishes a video interview with Lytro Founder Ren Ng explaining the features of the new camera:
DPReview publishes a Q&A session with Lytro CEO Jason Rosenthal and Ren Ng. Few quotes:
Q: "What's new about the sensor? It's listed at 40 megarays, but how would you explain that in terms that are more relatable to stills photographers?"
Rosenthal: "It's basically a 4x step up in terms of both number of pixels and underlying resolution, as well as sensor area size ... The sensor in the previous camera was 1/3", essentially a mobile sensor. This is a 1" sensor with an [underlying] 40-megapixel resolution."
