Los Angeles, CA, USA, Aug 16, 2019: Caldwell Photographic Inc. and Metabones® are pleased to announce a new Speed Booster® Ultra 0.71x, exclusively designed for the exciting new Fuji GFX medium format camera. The initial version is specifically optimized for use with the famous Hasselblad V series lenses. This new Speed Booster uses an advanced 6-element design to achieve excellent optical performance at apertures up to f/1.4 when paired with the Hasselblad 110mm f/2 lens.
Remember when back in 2016, Adobe announced “Project Sky Replace”, which promised to fully automatically replace the sky with 1 click?
Maybe I missed something, but how did it end with that one? Nothing, right? I mean, you can of course replace the sky in photoshop, but you do it manually, and I guess it costs about 10 minutes, not more. But still… 1 click is better than 10 minutes ;).
Now Luminar 4 is about to be released (coming this fall), and it promises to deliver, where Adobe failed so far: full AI sky replacement!
Skylum has now released a video (see above), where they show a beta version of the sky replacement in action.
It is, of course, a beta, but more importantly, it is a video aimed to market Luminar 4. We will have to wait for real life testings, to see how good or not it really works, especially in more tricky conditions, like when the sky is fragmented in many pieces, for example when shooting through trees or so.
But Skylum seems confident, and they market it big way.
If you want to test Luminar 4 AI sky replacement by yourself, there is a huge pre-order deal running now. Check pricing below.
