BlackBerry 10 camera app gets ‘timeline lens,’ bad photographers get a do-over
Thorsten Heins is on stage at BlackBerry World 2012 and has just unveiled the new BB10 camera app. It is designed to capture those “magic moments” you miss by not hitting that shutter quick enough. If you miss it by a couple of seconds, you can cycle back through the camera’s cache with a circular “timeline” lens and take your pick from the previous seconds worth of frames. It’s eerily reminiscent of technology used in the Nikon 1 series, although the implication here is that as soon as the camera app is loaded, it’ll start recording frames for your ease of use.
