A camera that tells you when to take a shot?12 August 2010
German designer Andrew Kupresanin's has posted details on the web of a camera prototype he has created that actually assesses how artistically pleasing a scene is before you take the shot.
His creation 'Nadia' is a small black camera that contains an 'aesthetics inference engine' to assess your potential shot. Unlike conventional digital cameras this new model doesn't display the scene you're going to photograph, instead it displays a percentage rating the shot you're about to take. As you move the camera the percentage changes, getting closer to 100% as you frame what it considers to be the ideal photograph.
Is this the first device that can think creatively and the next generation of advancement? What impact would (or will) cameras like this have on photography if mass produced? Indeed if a camera can be made to function creatively or intelligently what else could? Add your thoughts.
