Lytro adds Manual Controls

Added on by TEK.GADG.

Photo geeks can now have more flexibility when shooting with a Lytro camera. Lytro announced today a software update that will bring manual controls for shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, neutral density filter, and auto-exposure lock.

One of the top complaints for the Lytro was that it did not handle low light situations very well. Manual controls will help to mitigate that issue by allowing users to play with different settings to achieve optimal shots. Maximum and minimum shutter speeds are 8 seconds and 1/250 second respectively, and the ISO range is 80 to 3200.

Today is also the Canadian launch day for the Lytro. You can purchase one at Futureshop.ca when it goes up (we're not seeing it on the website yet).
