Photographers earning their spurs

Maybe I'm missing something, but the "latest" gadget https://witharsenal.com/ photography device just appears to be a method to convert your DSLR into an auto P&S

Posted output https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/witharsenal/ seems to substantiate this. Probably doesn't deserve its own topic but I couldn't resist the title.

Shirley any DSLR already has a full-auto mode?  Not sure what this is adding other than focus stacking and remote control...

My reading is that it becomes a "clever" auto, like the Panasonic P&S auto attempting to detect the subject and adjusting the auto to match. the standard auto setting just makes sure that the exposure/focus is spot on. There are often "scene" modes for manual selection of auto, too. These would be effectively replicated with the Chelsea.

Seems it compares your scene with a database of other photos, then uses the settings from them. So your photos will look just the same as everyone else's.

Perfect for Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/insta_repeat/

Smells like someone with an interest in photography and an ability to write mobile apps was struggling for an idea for what to write an app for.
It is what it is. It's not what it's not, so it must be what it is.
