Today DSLR and Mirrorless cameras have amazing optics and sensors, but the actual problem is that for beginners and even for professional it's really hard to take good pictures every single time. The main reason is that new technology doesn't provide all the necessary tools which can actually help you as a photographer. Plus not everything can be improved with Photoshop, sometimes you just have to find right setting for your camera and take a picture at the right moment. To solve this problem and give photographers more flexibility Ryan Stout developed the Arsenal - The world's first artificial intelligence photography assistant.
Arsenal’s Founder and CEO
Arsenal can take your photography to the next level, so before you replace your gear try upgrading your techniques with Arsenal.
This incredible device finds the best settings for your composition and literally helps you to take perfect photos in any condition. It actually searches millions of images in its database and analyzes 18 different factors such as your camera/lens model, tripod vibration, sensor dynamic range, subject motion and fine-tunes your settings to deliver great photo every single time you press a shutter button.
The world's first AI photography assistant
Arsenal markets itself as the intelligent camera system, which uses advanced machine learning algorithms to dramatically improve your photography skills. Plus you get the option to wirelessly control your camera settings through the mobile App which is now available on Android as well as on IOS devices. With the help of Arsenal App, you will be able to see a live preview of your camera directly from your phone, trigger the shutter buttons and change shutter speed/ISO/aperture. In addition now it's also possible to view the content of the memory card in full resolution and share your photos directly to Instagram, Facebook, and Snap.
The exciting news is that Arsenal will also support advanced camera function like focus stacking, long exposures without the need for ND filters, automatic photo stacking for HDR images and time lapses. But most importantly these RAW and JPG files will be directly saved to the camera.
How to take photos with Arsenal
Every time you want to capture an amazing photo with your DSLR or Mirrorless camera first you have to compose the shot, then you have to adjust the exposure and finally keep everything in focus, but the problem is that once you press the shutter button something goes wrong. With Arsenal, you just attach the device to your camera and the algorithm will do everything automatically in a matter of seconds, saving you lot of time and effort.
Step 1: Attach
Step 2: Connect
Step 3: Shoot
With Arsenal, you don't need to buy expensive filters to get a perfect focus or long exposures. By using this little device you would be able to go beyond the limitations of your camera and control your settings even from your mobile phone all from up to 100 feet away. Plus the system enables you to automatically adjust the exposure to get perfect transition and also watch high-definition time-lapse while it's being recorded. As the results, Arsenal improves the experience of reviewing photos and makes it easy to share your photos with your friend on social media.
Hardware and intelligent software
The device sits on top of your camera so you can use a hotshoe to attach Arsenal to your DSLR, but in case if you want to add a separate flash then you can mount it in another place as well. Personally, I think that the following system will be implemented in smartphones or in point-and-shoot cameras however currently it's a little accessory for your camera.
The Kickstarter campaign itself has been super successful and it raised over 2.6 million dollars from nearly 16,000 backers, which proves that the market is huge as well as the demand for a great product. Plus the following concept plays a big part in the development of photography and the way how we take professional looking pictures.
The idea behind the technology
Arsenal's artificial intelligence was actually developed by combining millions of data from different images of professional photographers. So once you press the shutter button device will analyze the scene around you, then compare your image to the similar scene in the database and based on this information you will get the perfect settings for your camera. In another word, Arsenal tries to choose the best possible setting from already existing data so that you don't have to waste your time and energy looking for the perfect setting. The end result is sharper images and technically better photo which is perfectly framed and tuned.
Considering the fact that in 21 century everyone is looking for simple and convenient ways to take professional images then Arsenal is definitely a winner. Plus the numbers on the Kickstarter campaign really proves that tendency.
Is the Arsenal Future of Photography?
Arsenal is truly the future of photography, the product which servers the growing market of different camera models including Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Fuji. Moreover, the following Kickstarter campaign really proves that there is a huge demand for camera AI assistant, which can instantly improve our photography skills. And it's perfect for everyone who has to deal with challenging shooting environments or has a passion to create some professional looking photos.
So if you agree with me and feel that this is the future of the photography go to Kickstarter page and support the Ryan to achieve his ambitious goal. let's revolutionize the camera industry together.
