Canon is releasing a piece of software that will take the strain out of finding the best frames from a portrait or wedding shoot. Not content with just announcing the details of the flagship Canon EOS 1-D X Mark III at the CES 2020, it has also revealed a clever-sounds in app called Photo Culling.

The idea of this bit of software is that it works within Adobe Lightroom Classic as a plugin, and will take the strain of picking the best shot from a shoot. Powered by what Canon is calling its Computer Vision AI engine, the Photo Culling app promises "to save photographers countless hours in post-production by using technical models to cull for image sharpness, noise, exposure, contrast, closed eyes, and red eyes".
