ILLUM 2.0. Performance. New Features. Interactivity.
ILLUM 2.0 gives your camera a cleaner, easier to customize interface, with full screen views and improved focus range tools to assist in composition. Combined with the new features listed below, ILLUM 2.0 opens up a new level of creative interaction and control with your camera. It’s free, and it’s available for download. Here is a list of what’s new in ILLUM 2.0:
|The ILLUM 2.0 interface update makes it easier|
to view your camera’s on screen controls.
From the Info Bar to the progress indicator ILLUM 2.0 imparts a visually pleasing refresh to your camera’s on-screen controls. Our design team has created a look and feel update that is more than just a facelift; it’s an update that makes the ILLUM more useful in your creative process. It’s faster to respond, crisper to the eye, and easier to read in bright light conditions.
Interactive Living Picture Playback
In our Lytro Desktop application, our lytro.pictures.com website, and in our iOS and Android mobile apps, you can view and interact with your Living Pictures. With ILLUM 2.0 we bring advanced Lytro player functionality directly to the ILLUM playback experience, even before you import it into your computer. Simply capture your light field pictures, and then let the ILLUM create a Living Picture to preview focus and depth of field, all within the camera. In addition to interactive refocusing, the update enables previewing Virtual Aperture with two-finger gesture and Perspective Shift by clicking and dragging side-to-side, a feature exclusive to Light Field imagery and the ILLUM camera.
Redesigned Focus Aid
We’ve updated our interactive Focus Aid in the Capture Mode preview to make it easier to select the optimal refocusing range. As you change the ILLUM’s focal length or focus distance, the new preview more clearly indicates the physical distance and total range of focus from foreground to background.
Improved Auto Focus
With ILLUM 2.0 we’re rolling out a faster auto focus system that crisply and precisely resolves scenes up to three times faster than in the original ILLUM. This will enable light field photographers to compose and capture a wider array of fast paced action scenes such as wildlife, children and sports. Simply touch anywhere on the screen to select the subject or the region you want, and the ILLUM focuses in fractions of second so you can capture the perfect Living Picture.
