Lytro’s new controls include shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, neutral density filter, and auto exposure lock. The maximum shutter speed is eight seconds with a minimum of 1/250 second.
New cameras also will have an ISO range of 80 to 3200 to take photos in low-level and brightly lit environments. The neutral density filter helps photogs capture and adjust the level of brightness in their photos.
The new controls address a few critiques of the camera, primarily that it’s a bit too simplistic for its price points of $300 (for 8GB) and $500 (for 32GB).
Lytro photographer director Eric Cheng said in a statement that the controls were introduced in response to consumer feedback and add “flexibility as they push the boundaries of the light field.”
