Nokia Refocus Camera App Released for Lumia Smartphone

The Nokia Refocus camera app allows you to shift the focus after you have taken the photo, similar to what the Lytro camera does.

When you then click on the image to select where you want to reposition focus, the app (software) simply select one of the images which have the object you clicked in sharp focus. It’s a clever implementation and avoids the costly physical implementation of the Lytro.
