Is that true? Is there an optical sensor on the AR635
I get the feeling this guy doesn't know what he's talking about.
No. AS3X is a 3-axis gyro-based damping system. It doesn't use optical sensors or accelerometers. It is physically impossible for the system to 'see' anything besides the information sent from the 3-axis gyro.
