Lytro camera torn down by FCC, shows Wi-Fi, BT

Lytro's infinite focus camera has been torn down by the FCC, revealing its internal components. Behind the 1.5-inch display hides a Marvell Avastar 88W8787 system-on-chip that contains both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios. This is interesting, as it indicates the camera has the hardware required to be controlled over a wireless link or share its photos online.

The camera also contains a Zoran ZR364246BGXX processor, though its function isn't clear. Otherwise, the innards include the large 11-megaray sensor, a 2,100mAh battery, Hynix SDRAM, and Samsung flash memory.

The Lytro costs $400 in black or blue, but goes up to $500 for a red version. The camera allows users to set a focal point after the image is captured as the camera looks at light from all directions. [via Wireless Goodness]
