ISO, shutter speed configurable on light-field camera
Lytro has added manual controls to its light-field camera. The ability to change the camera's settings, allowing for more control over shot parameters such as shutter speed and ISO, comes on the same day the Lytro hits retail stores across the US. The update is also accompanied by two new colors: "Seaglass" and "Moxie Pink."
The ISO can now be set between 80 and 3200, and the shutter speed can be set to last between 1/250 and 8 seconds. A Neutral Density Filter can be turned on to adjust the amount of light captured in extremely bright settings, while an Auto Exposure Lock can prevent the exposure changing when moving the camera. As well as being included in newly sold cameras, the settings update can also be applied to existing Lytro cameras.
The Lytro camera is on sale with an 8GB memory for $400, with a camera case available for an extra $60, and a camera sleeve for $30.
