An interesting feature is the automation of the well-known technique of removing people from pictures. A camera mounted on a tripod takes several shots, after which the Scene Retouching function combines their fragments, so that only static objects remain in the final image

In addition, Polaris will delight fans of timelapse or time-lapse photography, as it can adjust exposure parameters to suit changing lighting conditions.

The minimum contribution to qualify for a head is $ 599. The authors of the project promise to start shipping in July this year.
