It has a fixed focal length of 28mm, and has manual dials and buttons on the back of the unit to allow you to tailor the aperture, power, distance and ISO for your photos.
Manual vs Automatic Mode
Godox's design team has taken both beginners and seasoned photographers into mind when designing the Lux Junior. The "A" mode has been designed to help you calculate proper exposure to make your shooting experience easier. For those feeling more adventurous, the "M" mode is trickier, but enables you to unlock more creative possibilities and take photos with classic controls by letting you tailor your settings to your desire. Change modes by simply changing the dial on the back of the Junior to "M" or "A".
