I just heard of this almost magical camera gadget that seems to be the next big thing on Kick-Starter, Arsenal.
It is a gadget that can help you select the optimal camera settings, by analyzing the subject, light etc. and make you get perfect pictures every time.
Although I find the technology behind this gadget fascinating, I can't help thinking that this is yet another attempt to dumb it down.
Photography is, among many other things, a matter of learning a craft. Figuring out what works and what doesn't and to keep striving towards mastering the craft.
Perhaps this thingy can help beginners understand the craft better?
Personally, I would not use it, even if it could make life easier.
But that is just a personal choice. I WANT photography to be challenging. I want to feel stupid when I fail and I want to feel awesome when I succeed.
Using an add-on Superior-Auto Mode does not seem like the best way to challenge yourself.
