Firmware update for Lytro cameras unlocks manual controls, ND filter, AE lock

        

Lytro released a new firmware update that introduces shutter speed+ ISO manual controls, AE lock and ND filter to their light field camera:

  • 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.

The company also announced new colors for the US market:
