Short story: SQUARE, the credit card processing company, is branching out by working on a service for small business owners to provide product photography using robots to take what it determines are most optimal shots. Humans are still involved for the tasks of packing/unpacking the product, checking the images that were captured, etc. but the actual pressing of the shutter is done by the robots. So far they have one test lab in NY with plans for more.

After re-reading the full article, I'm still not sure why the robots are involved when humans are needed for just about everything but the shutter press. Maybe it's something like the "Arsenal" gear where the computer (or "robot" to make it send more sci-fi) determines the camera settings?

The Amazon LED studio box mentioned in the article caught my attention though. Shiny! :D
