In case you missed it (I did), Sigma Japan posted a couple of sample images of the soon-to-be-shipping Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art. If the sample images are to be a sign of things to come, this is going to be a stellar lens.

This lens and the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG HSM OS Art will be available for preorder on June 22, 2017 at 1AM EST.

Macphun Introduces Accent ​— ​an​ ​AI-powered Filter That Takes Images  From Good to Great in One Second

Macphun Introduces Accent ​— ​an​ ​AI-powered Filter That Takes Images From Good to Great in One Second

By Canon Rumors | June 15, 2017 | Canon Business General

The Accent AI Filter is part of new Luminar Neptune – a major update to Macphun’s best-selling photo software.

San Diego, CA – June 15, 2017 — Macphun , the California-based developer known for making complex photo editing simple and user-friendly, today launched the update to its award-winning photo editor Luminar .

The most significant innovation in Luminar Neptune is a new photo filter powered by the artificial intelligence technology developed in-house by Macphun’s Research and Development Lab. The new Accent AI Filter allows anyone to create stunning images with a single slider instead of using dozens of adjustments and controls. It takes just a second and one swoosh of a slider to remarkably improve a photo.

The Accent AI Filter in Luminar uses artificial intelligence to analyze different areas of an image based on its structure, objects, dark and light zones, colors and other parameters. As a user moves the slider, the filter intelligently and automatically “understands” what each area on the photo is lacking and improves it. Moving the slider can also adjust the intensity of changes, making the picture look more natural or revealing a more dramatic look, depending on the desired effect.
