Meet Arsenal, the 'Intelligent Camera Assistant' That Helps You Take the Perfect Shot
This wireless camera controller never wants you to miss out on the perfect shot again.
There are tons of wireless camera controllers out there that allow you to change your camera’s settings from the comfort of your own smartphone, but engineer Ryan Stout aims to take these kinds of devices to the next level.
Meet Arsenal, the “world’s first intelligent assistant for DSLR and mirrorless cameras.” This interesting little device not only allows you to control your camera wirelessly through an app on your phone, but its advanced machine learning algorithms actually help you capture better images. It does this through its “settings asssistant AI,” which can optimize your camera settings based on your shooting conditions (18 different factors), as well as the millions of high-quality photos it has been trained to compare your shot with using the same algorithm used in self driving cars.
Clearly there’s something about this device that has gotten the photo/film community in a serious tizzy. With four days left in it’s Kickstarter campaign, Arsenal has raised over $1.7 million.
