expiredDaily Deals: Lytro ILLUM Light Field Camera $335, Logitech MFi PowerShell Controller for iPhone 5/5s $10, more

In today’s Daily Deals, we have from Electronics.Woot the Lytro ILLUM 40 Megaray Light Field Camera for $330 + $5 shipping. That’s 79% off the original list price, $70 less than Amazon and the lowest we’ve seen by $55.

“Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing your average static 2D image. But the Illum’s cutting-edge technology records the direction of these rays, generating images you can later refocus, change perspective within, or view in 3D. You can essentially revisit the scene of the photo—meaning you’ll never miss snapping the perfect shot again.” Rated 3.3/5 stars from Amazon customers.

You’ll have to hurry to grab one of these limited edition Fallout 4 Xbox One controllers

Update (10/23 12:30pm): It’s been a big week over at the Bethesda Store, as a number of sweet Fallout 4 accessories have been launched. Aside from a cool limited edition messenger bag and artwork, today has delivered the best product of all: beer! That’s right, Fallout and Carlsberg have combined to launch a sweet new drink. More details here.

The Bethesda Store has kicked off a weeklong Fallout 4 promotion, revealing a fresh item each day. A new limited edition t-shirt was announced today. Tuesday is set to deliver the big ticket item: Bethesda will be releasing a new Fallout-inspired Xbox One Controller. The kicker? There will only be 5,000 available. It’s unclear what time the sale will launch, but today’s item was up by 9am. If you’re interested you’ll have to move fast to grab one.

Bethesda has decked out the controller with a blue and yellow paint scheme with a Vault-Boy on one of the handles. While it is a wired controller, the design is still pretty killer for big Fallout Boy fans. No word yet on pricing. We’ll continue to update this post with the more notable gear launched by Bethesda this week.

This is just the latest in a string of limited edition Xbox One consoles and controllers that we have seen. The upcoming Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is set to release next week alongside Halo 5: Guardians, which also received its own specially designed peripheral. The limited edition madness isn’t just reserved for Xbox One, Call of Duty fans will be able to grab the new Black Ops II PlayStation 4 bundle next month.
