Casio's Dynamic Photos Deliver Green Screen Effects Without the Green Screen

Casio just unveiled its new Dynamic Photos technology. It lets you cut out video of yourself from the background, placing it elsewhere. Get ready for a slew of horrible green screen videos on YouTube.

You basically just take a video and then take a still shot of the background. The camera then is able to cut the subject out of the background and place it on any other background you'd like. At the press conference they demonstrated the function against a perfectly white background, which obviously produced very clean results, but who knows how well it'll work against a less uniform background. But really, it's a pretty easy way to do pretty basic green screen work without even dumping the video out of your camera.

Dynamic Photos will be available in the upcoming EX-FC100. I weep for how this will be used in the future.
