Meet "ARSENAL" Photo Assistant

Finally a device that can help me take pictures into my "senile" years...

I may be just another excuse to not buy Pentax cameras if it isn't.

As a Tottenham Hotspur supporter I can't countenance anything named Arsenal.

Not initially. Check back in five years.

The first step before using this kind of device would be to use the green mode (it's free).
I guess this device is designed for Canon / Nikon users, because, for the long exposures using stacked exposures Pentax does it native.

Don't be surprised if many of the features of this device finish up in future cameras. Who needs the camera to focus for you or automatically set the aperture? Things we once thought were unnecessary (even an insult to those who learned about photography the hard way) are now taken for granted by many people.

I think it has focus stacking feature which would be useful. Other than that, seems we have most of it already.

And now the second version: Arsenal mk2

Sadly, still no (apparent) support for our Pentax cameras.

Part of the continuing attempt to remove the human from the process.

Count me out, there is something to using a brand everyone else thinks is dead. Does this "thing" claim Copyright?

But you can vote for the Camera you want to be supported.
The more votes for Pentax cameras, the more chance it will happen.

They are presently working on a more powerfull version
