Meet Relonch, the camera without a screenThe Relonch camera has built-in LTE, so it uploads photos to the cloud and automatically edits them for you.
This camera doesn't have a screen and it only has a shutter button to take photos. It's called Relonch a camera that automatically uploads photos to the Cloud with built-in LTE. In the cloud an algorithm processes your photos and applies corrections and adjustment. Your best images as chosen by the algorithm gets. See you at 9 AM the next morning either through an iCloud shared folder or through an app. The camera is covered with colored leather and exposure is set to aperture priority at F/2. You can't change any of the settings. It uses an APS-C Sensor like those found on mirrorless cameras and the SLRs and has a fixed 45 mm prime lens. For the most part the edited photos look great but they're heavy on vignettes, HDR and contrast. Also you don't get the roll or original files, only the processed photos. And there's one more caveat. The camera and the service cost $99.00 a month. That's probably a lot more than pretty much any monthly subscription you already pay like internet or cable. This is just a concept of what the camera might look like when it launches in 2018. Other mock-ups the company is working on are more compact and pocket-sized. You can test drive the camera at a showroom in Palo Alto, California right now, with other Said he's opening in 2017. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
