FCC releases Lytro Illum Internal Photos and more

Lytro Illum, internal photos (picture: Sporton International, FCC) (9) Lytro’s confidentiality request for the FCC‘s pictures of the Lytro Illum expired yesterday, so the FCC have just published their detailed internal and external photographs of the light field camera and further test setup photos of the preliminary Illum version which was submitted for testing on April 23 2014. (Lytro later re-submitted the shipping Illum version for FCC approval.)
Also newly released is the preliminary user manual for the Illum (link at the end of the article) that was submitted to the FCC, which contained a few asterisks for features that were “not available on the test unit”, namely the Lytro button, AF and AEL buttons, and Continuous Shooting Mode.

Here’s a copy of the internal pictures from the FCC’s Lytro Illum teardown:

  1. There’s a GPS antenna in one of the pictures. I don’t remember any mention of that in the Lytro documentation.

    • Thank you for your comment, Jack.
      While Lytro themselves haven’t mentioned GPS, we’ve read about it before and had it in our Illum specs list for some time. The photos are definitive proof that GPS is included.
