Let the “smart” in smartphone add intelligence to your camera.
Minion will ship with a free application to get you started but you can use Minion with your existing REDLINK applications while waiting for video support to be added. And with Minion's straight forward streaming protocol the wait shouldn't be long.
However, while it might be easy to add video to a control app, the real power of Minion will become evident when developers start taking advantage of access to a live video stream. Not happy with the auto exposure algorithms available today? Write your own. How about facial tracking driven exposure? There are existing APIs that developers could use to add that. From custom focus assist and false color modes to LUTs and waveforms. Developers are no longer limited to rearranging dials and buttons--they can now present real-time video data in new and ever more powerful ways.
