Skylum introduces AirMagic, AI-powered photo editing software for aerial photography 

Utilizing Artificial Intelligence, AirMagic gives drone and aerial photographers an automated solution to improve their images. 

BELLEVUE, WA – March 7, 2019 — Today, Skylum announced AirMagic, the world’s first fully automated AI-powered enhancer for Mac & PC, created for drone and aerial photography. 

While drones let us shoot incredible images from previously unreachable places, the photos themselves often lack quality, making for a lot of manual post-processing work to fix issues like haze, low or extreme contrast, lack of sharpness, undersaturation and chromatic aberration. This tedious editing process requires time, special knowledge and expensive software.

With AirMagic, these problems are a thing of the past. AirMagic was created to automatically resolve issues inherent to aerial photography. It lets photographers process their images without major involvement — all you need to do is drop all your aerial photos into the app, and AirMagic takes care of the rest to make each photo look its best.

Canon Instant Cameras With Built-In Printer On The Way?

Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

Nokishita spotted a list of Canon camera SKUs which point to instant cameras, and some might have a built-in printer.

Here’s the list:

  • 3879C001: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Gold)
  • 3879C002: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (White)
  • 3879C003: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Blue)
  • 3879C004: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Red)
  • 3884C001: IVY instant camera (green)
  • 3884C002: IVY Instant Camera (Yellow)
  • 3884C003: IVY instant camera (blue)
  • 3884C004: IVY instant camera (red)

The interesting thing here is that Canon mobile printer series have the moniker IVY. This, and the “2in1” denomination, makes us think some of the cameras listed above have a high probability to be instant cameras with a built-in printer, like the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10

The Yongnuo YN450 is a Mirrorless Android Camera with 4/3 Sensor and Canon EF Mount

Yongnuo Yn450

We know the brand Yongnuo for their inexpensive lenses and flashes. Here is something different and rather unusual.

The Yongnuo YN450 is a camera with a 4/3 sensor and Canon EF mount, and like a smartphone it’s powered by Android.

As Cinema5D sums it up:

The Yongnuo YN450 is a smart mirrorless camera with Android operating system and a 16MP micro four thirds image sensor. It features a Canon EF mount, a 5″ multi-touch 1080p display, as well as a 4G SIM card slot for instant content sharing.
Yongnuo decided to equip their camera with the Canon EF lens mount, which might have to do with Yongnuo’s lens portfolio, which is based on Canon EF mount (and Nikon F mount). However, that mount makes the whole camera-lens combination very bulky and actually prevents one from being able to use more compact micro four thirds lenses, which would be a better match for the sensor, in my opinion.

Who need such a camera, and does it make sense?

Canon EF-M 32mm F/1.4 STM Review (simple yet reliable lens, Photography Blog)

Canon EF-M 32mm F/1.4 STM

Photography Blog reviewed the Canon EF-M 32mm F/1.4 STM, Canon’s latest addition to the EOS M lens line-up. And the first serious prime for the EOS M system.

From their conclusion:

The Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM lens is the ideal lens for Canon EOS M users who are looking for a new prime lens to fit into their kit bag. It’s a simple, yet reliable, “nifty fifty” type lens by the time you take into account the crop factor of using it with an APS-C sized sensor.

[…] with lenses like this, Canon shows that it is still thinking about the various different consumers it is trying to cater for.

The Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM is only the third prime lens to be made for the M series, and thanks to its focal length and wide aperture, it has a range of practical applications. You might consider it a portrait lens – albeit best suited to environmental type portraits – as well as for low light, pet portraits, still life, food and more.
