Sony has announced the release of a new firmware upgrade for the popular α6400 E-mount compact mirrorless camera, which will facilitate real-time Eye AF for animals.
This new mode uses Sony’s latest algorithm which includes AI [Artificial Intelligence] based object recognition and processes colour, subject distance [depth], pattern [brightness] as spatial data to assure that subjects can be shot with great accuracy.
Also, when shooting humans with the α6400, face and eye position information is recognised by AI and the subjects eye is monitored in real time with remarkably high tracking accuracy. This can be initiated by a half press of the shutter, or can also be assigned to a custom function if prefered.
Having spent many years working in various
pockets of the music industry, and always with
a camera in hand, Simon has worked with
organisations such as Warner/Chappell,
Food Records and ultimately, co-founding the
innovative independent record label, Izumi
Records before moving fully into the world
of publishing in 2007.
Amongst numerous other projects in the last
decade, he has been responsible for a number
of specialist photo trade magazines and journals
for the filmmaking and photography
communities, along with a coffee table book
entitled, "Great Britons of Photography' which he
produced with Peter Dench and Leica.
Now heading up PhotoBite, Simon and the team
have set themselves a task of delivering
informative and inspirational content for
photographers of all levels, from the beginner,
shooting with smartphones, to the seasoned
photographer and filmmaker.
