As prevalent as smartphone cameras and easy-to-use photo filters might be right now, there is still an unmistakable art to taking a professional-looking photograph. The Lytro Illum is looking to make that art form a lot simpler.

Lytro debuted its first model three years ago, wowing the tech world with a camera that could snap a picture, then let users refocus the image later. The new Illum still does that neat little trick, but it also ups the ante, as its aimed at more of the pro shooter market with features like an 8x optical zoom, 30-250mm equivalent focal lens with a constant f/2.0 aperture and 1:3 macro, and 4-inch glass touchscreen with a backlit LCD. The Illum’s software also lets you change the depth of field and create 3-D images. Lyto is taking pre-orders now at $1,499, with shipments expected to go out in August. Watch the video below.
