On the Lytro Blog, we try to share a little of Lytro’s story, about our business and employees. We’ve also shared the story of our first employees. Now, we’re excited to to be able to share the story of our first customer, Josh Bonk. Josh managed to place his order in the first minute after cameras went on sale on Lytro.com.
We asked Josh for a little background on his interest in the Lytro and he shared, “I first heard about Lytro reading through the techblogs Engadget and Gizmodo. I saw it and just thought it was something completely different. It really just seemed fun. I’m not an avid photographer; I’ll typically use my iPhone or let someone else take all the photos and just grab a copy for myself after its all said and done. I thought this would be a lot of fun for weddings and really when traveling.”
This photo of Josh’s nephew, “Gibson the Moose,” is just the type of picture he looks forward to shooting with his Lytro. Our team is working hard so we can see Gibson imitate other native habitat in living pictures.
