Microsoft Research developing blur-reducing technology


Before and after.

Microsoft Research have posted a report on an intriguing new technology to deblur camera images, one that uses gyros and accelerometers to detect the device’s movement while taking a shot and then makes changes to the image based on that movement.

This won’t have any immediate effect on mobile users, and can’t even be implemented on current WP7 devices – though Microsoft have said they plan to eventually add gyroscopes to WP7. However, this could be a killer feature for the next generation of phones.

While a great solution to blurry phone-cam pictures, this is also unlikely to resolve the focus issues that are the biggest problem with miniature phone cameras.
