Apple Seeking Fix for Blurry iPhone Pics
It's a phenomenon we've all experienced: blurry iPhone pics - usually, when we're actually trying to capture a memory of lasting value.
Aware of this commonplace occurrence, Apple is purportedly working on a fix for fuzzy images captured by the otherwise high-quality cameras built into our iDevices. This much is evident in a new patent filing by Apple coming to light this week.
Details gleaned from a U.S. Patent and Trademark Office filing show that Apple is working on a method by which iPhones will capture a series of images within a single snapshot to determine which image is the highest quality of the bunch, based on a number of variables factored into the equation.
The method can include storing a predetermined number of the sequence of images in a buffer. The device can receive a user request to capture an image. The method can automatically select one of the buffered images based on one or more parameters. For example, the selection may be based on an exposure time of one of the buffered images and optionally an image quality parameter (e.g., image contrast). Alternatively, the selection may be based only on the image quality parameter.

Camera isn't much cop in iPhones anyway. They should keep up with others.

Apple should consider letting us do manual-focus aswell.
Auto-focus is a bit noobish.

Wait, what? Why? I've yet to take one blurry photo on my 4S...

So please, Apple, don't call it an "amazing feature" on your next phones...
And yes, I have an iPhone...

Yet another patent for something Samsung already implements in their galaxy phones.

People will ALWAYS complain about something. I'm just glad apple fixed the battery drain that the 4s had.

Never really had a problem with my camera, and I take a ton of pictures

So their new camera concept will be like a DVR and will start recording images when you open the camera app and then discard all of the "bad" stuff after you have taken the picture and the iPhone has determined the "best" picture to keep. If they make the phone bigger they will have to increase the size of the battery for all of this extra processing that will be required.

Get Camera+ and use the stabilizer feature!

Honestly, the cameras built in to the phones aren't very good, they can't be simply due to how small they must be.
That being said, I generally only get blurry images when the camera lens is dirty, which happens a lot with the phones.

As far as the article goes, this "patent" they are filing for seems a little suspect considering that I believe Samsung and Windows have something similar to this already, but I think that Samsung's software expects a user selection as opposed to an auto-selection. I could be wrong though.iEat. iSleep. iPhone.

I think iPhone 5 camera is good. iPhone's photo's are of excellent quality regardless of the lighting. it has better image processing feature also.
