- You can use Auto-Exposure Lock when either of these manual settings is engaged, but not both.
- You can also use Auto-Exposure Lock at any time within Everyday Mode and Creative Mode.
In Everyday Mode, you have always been able to choose to manually adjust the exposure in your composition-- but as soon as you moved the camera, auto-exposure would resume.
When using Auto-Exposure Lock, moving the first generation Lytro camera has no effect.
Here's how to lock auto-exposure:
- Compose your picture normally.
- If you decide that the composition is too bright or too dark, touch and hold the touchscreen over the bright (or dark) area.
- You will see the text "AE Lock" appear at the bottom of the screen.
- To return to normal auto-exposure, tap the screen once-- or take a picture.
NOTE: Auto-Exposure Lock only applies to your next picture.
This article applies only to the first generation Lytro camera.
