Quick News – To celebrate the launch of their consumer light-field camera to the general public, Lytro has added a few more exciting pieces to the “shoot now, focus later” puzzle, adding the crucial functionalities of manual controls, much to the delight of potential owners.
Here’s a rundown of the added controls noted by Lytro in their official press release:
- Shutter Speed- By manually controlling the shutter speed, Lytro photographers can keep the shutter open longer to capture living pictures in dark conditions. The maximum shutter speed is 8 seconds and the minimum is 1/250 second.
- ISO Sensitivity – Controlling ISO gives Lytro photographers more ways to take creative living pictures in a variety of lighting conditions, from low-light concerts and restaurants to brightly lit soccer fields and amusement parks. The ISO range is 80 (min) to 3200 (max).
- Neutral Density (ND) Filter – When in full manual mode, Lytro photographers can turn on the ND Filter to adjust the amount of light captured in extremely bright settings.
- Auto Exposure (AE) Lock – Lytro photographers can lock the auto exposure while changing the composition of a picture in a scene.
Moreover, Lytro is adding two more colors into today’s camera release mix, releasing “Seaglass” and “Moxie Pink” – the latter of which will become available in November, exclusively at Target.
