Krisp reduces noise on calls using machine learning, and it’s coming to Windows soon

If your luck is anything like mine, as soon as you jump on an important call, someone decides it’s a great time to blow some leaves off the sidewalk outside your window. 2Hz’s Krisp is a new desktop app that uses machine learning to subtract background noise like that, or crowds, or even crying kids — while keeping your voice intact. It’s already out for Macs and it’s coming to Windows soon. I met the creators of Krisp, including 2Hz co-founder Davit Baghdasaryan, earlier this year at UC Berkele...

Skullcandy aims upscale with two new headphones

Skullcandy has always been an odd brand. Aimed at a younger, hipper audience, the headphones always featured wacky graphics and a lower price point. Now, facing competition from multiple players, they’ve decided to step up their game in terms of quality and style. Their two new models, the noise-cancelling Venue and the bass-heavy Crusher 360, are designed to hit the Bose/B&O/Sony quality point while still maintaining a bit of Beats styling.

Kandao Raw+ offers automated image stacking for raw files without ghosting

Stacking raw files isn’t anything new. We’ve been able to do it in Photoshop for years. But doing it in Photoshop requires some legwork. If you’ve got moving subjects in your shots, you need to mask things out, which can take a lot of time depending on the shot. Kandao’s new Raw+ software, however, figures it […] The post Kandao Raw+ offers automated image stacking for raw files without ghosting appeared first on DIY Photography.

What does your skin say about you? Apparently, it says what you say

Long Exposure Noise Wasn’t Reviewed Well Enough for This Guy– So He Did It Himself

When you’re buying a camera, what do you do first? Well, most of us go online and look for reviews. We look for the reviews about the parts of the camera that relate to what we’re going to use the camera for. The majority of the time, we’re looking for things like low-light performance, color depth and resolution, but there’s a decent group among us that are looking for something entirely different. The Long Exposure Sensor Noise. Why is this important? Well, the low-light performance of a came...

Which Camera is the Noisiest? This visual database compares sensor noise

The quality of long exposures is determined mostly by the amount of noise a camera produces. The lower the noise levels, the better the exposure. This is especially true if you are shooting lots of nightscapes or night skies, where most of the photo is black. And Brendan Davey shoots a lot of night photos, in fact he shoots [...] The post Which Camera is the Noisiest? This visual database compares sensor noise appeared first on DIY Photography.

Quick Tip About Reducing Noise

I’m not a fan of noise reduction at all, because to me (just my opinion) it does something worse that what noise does to my image  — it blurs the image (that’s essentially what noise reduction does – it’s blurs the image to hide the noise), so I’m not a fan of something that erases all the time and expense I put into getting sharp shots. Again, just my opinion (plus the fact that the only people on earth who notice noise are other photographers, but I digress). Anyway, that being said – if you h...
