NVIDIA says that the Ansel tech is a revolutionary way to capture photos and that gamers can think of it as a camera integrated into the gaming experience. Ansel does have to be supported in the game and when it is the camera can be moved to any angle they desire and filters applied to the image. Images can also be captured in 360 for VR viewing.
