Wayne, I just went back to the website, and something is definitely different. Before, I was able to view the images full screen, and that’s when the lack of quality became obvious. They must have figured it out and removed that option.

To confirm my suspicions, I did a little research. This is an excerpt from the PC Magazine article about the technology:

It all sounds like a big improvement over normal photography, and it is, but it doesn’t come without tradeoffs, the main one being picture resolution. The nature of light-field photography makes it difficult capture high-resolution images without making the optics extremely complicated. Although Ng says his team has found ways to mitigate the issue, the Lytro camera won’t be competing with others on the market in the megapixel arena.
