The creators of the world’s first consumer light field camera, Lytro, has announced the availability of manual controls in its camera.

Starting today, all new cameras purchased will feature easy-to-use and readily accessible manual controls. Those who already have a Lytro camera can access the new manual controls through a free firmware update.

The firmware upgrade will allow photographers to shoot pictures with the Lytro camera in a wide variety of conditions – from low light settings to high-speed subjects. Photos taken with the manual controls can be found here: Lytro Images

The new controls are:
  • 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
Lytro is also offering two new camera colours: Moxie Pink and Seaglass. Additionally, a new camera case and protective sleeve are now available. The Lytro camera in Moxie Pink and Seaglass is available for $399. The new camera case and sleeve come with RRPs of $59.95 and $29.95.

Visit Lytro for more information about the camera. You can read ePHOTOzine's Lytro Light Field Camera Hands-On Preview in our reviews.
