ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CAPABILITIES
Arsenal’s smart assistant AI suggests settings based on your subject and environment. It uses an advanced neural network to pick the optimal settings for any scene (using similar algorithms to those in self driving cars). Like any good assistant, it then lets you control the final shot. Here’s how it works:
Arsenal quickly examines the scene. It uses image recognition to identify environment and subject-specific needs (e.g. fast shutter for birds or camera vibration)
Arsenal then finds great settings by comparing the current scene with thousands of professional photos using a convolutional deep neural network.
Lastly, Arsenal optimizes settings based on 18 different factors, like hyperfocal distance, sensor dynamic range and lens transmission.
TAKE SHARPER PHOTOS
Smart Assistant customizes settings based on the lens and camera you're using, along with how they perform in different situations. Is your lens weaker at certain apertures? Arsenal will move settings to avoid those weaknesses. Sitting atop your camera, Arsenal’s accelerometer can judge exactly how stable your camera is. It can then choose the perfect shutter speed to get sharp photos without noise.
LIVE VIEW WITH YOUR PHONE
Phones and tablets typically have at least 3 times the resolution and 2 times the brightness of a camera’s rear screen. Arsenal gives you a higher resolution live view on your phone, making it easier to compose your shot.
Focus with a tap. With the focus tool, you can focus on a single point, or select multiple points and Arsenal will make sure they are all in focus.
Compose the perfect shot. Easily add grids and a level to make sure you photo is perfectly aligned.
Ensure the parts you want are crystal clear. Focus peaking highlights what’s in focus in red to ensure sharp focus.
STACKING MADE EASY
If there’s one secret of the pros in landscape and real-estate photography, it’s stacking. Stacking simply is taking multiple photos and merging them together to capture detail that is lost in a single exposure. Arsenal makes stacking easy. It can take the optimal number of photos at the right settings, then merge the photos to a new RAW or JPG file.*
* Merged RAW files are saved as 16 bit DNG's
ALWAYS SHOOT THE SWEET SPOT
Getting sharp photos isn’t easy. Arsenal can automatically take and merge multiple photos at different focus positions (at the lenses sharpest aperture) to create incredibly sharp shots.
GREAT SHOTS IN TRICKY LIGHT
Even with today's high dynamic range cameras, it’s very common to lose details in the highlights or shadows. Arsenal can automatically detect when detail is being lost and take multiple photos at different shutter speeds to capture all of the missed detail, then merges the photos for you.
CAPTURE LOOOOONG EXPOSURE
Soft clouds and smooth water can really isolate a subject and simplify an otherwise complex scene. Normally you need expensive ND filters to capture long exposures. Arsenal can combine multiple photos, averaging the pixel values to generate long exposures without the need for ND filters.
THE BEST PHOTO REVIEW
Let’s face it, reviewing images on your camera’s tiny screen is never fun. With Arsenal, you can review them wirelessly on your phone. Flip through photos instantly, zoom in to see details at full-resolution, then share favorites right from your phone.
Arsenal’s dual caching system makes it so you can flip through your camera’s photos as quickly as you can flick your finger.
You can even skip the computer review all together. Arsenal lets you share the full resolution photo to Instagram, Facebook, 500px, or Lightroom right from your phone.
You can star your photos right in the Arsenal app and they will persist the ratings when imported into Lightroom.
CAPTURE STUNNING TIMELAPSES
We love timelapses, so we designed the best timelapse interface on the planet. Set your parameters, then ask Arsenal to adjust the exposure in changing light for a smooth day-to-night transition. You can even preview your timelapse while it’s being recorded.
Once you start your timelapse, Arsenal takes care of the rest. You (and your phone) can leave your camera working. Come back anytime to check on the progress or make adjustments while the scene is still being captured.
