Looks good for the output image, possibly bad for the skill behind a good image.

Well it won't affect the average Pentax user since Pentax isn't supported.

It's nothing new. Many consumer level DSLRs have an auto scene mode setting (including some Pentaxs.) But it's really preferable to understand the camera settings and know what you're doing.

Agrred. I think the same principle should apply to the idea of driver-less cars !

Pentax already does the looong exposure thin with its composite shooting mode (simulating ND filters)

Agreed on that. Yes, they're fine some of the time but one doesn't wish it to get confused by something out of the ordinary. Same with that photo of a lifetime opportunity.

Yes. The proponents of driver-less say it is no different to an aircraft auto-pilot. It is nothing of the sort.

I'm quite impressed with that level of AI...and not really one who goes for 'Tech'.

As long as I have full manual control of all my camera settings to the extent I do now, I see no reason why this level of AI couldn't be incorporated in all new cameras...DSLRs included.

In fact, given that Pentax don't really have much in the way of entry level/beginner's DSLR they could maybe look at bringing out the KS-1 AI or K-500AI rebadged with updated nomenclature to appeal directly to absolute beginners who want to go down the 'proper camera' route but are used to AI on their phones.

No surprise there really... A Mobile with AI is also a little lighter and easier to manage than a K1 with 15-30 attached..

https://witharsenal.com/supported-cameras A mobile is also easier than a Canon or a Nikon or a Sony but those are supported. I don't think you understand what Arsenal is about.
