Apple Patents: Apple Working to Revolutionize Image Capture

Apple Inc (AAPL)Apple Patents: Have you ever taken a picture with your smartphone, just to find that it did not turn out how you wanted? Surely you have. This is something that almost everybody has dealt with in the past. If Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has anything to say about it, this problem could be a thing of the past.

The Cupertino-based company has filed a patent that would allow a smartphone to capture and store multiple images until the shutter is released. At that time, the phone would select the image that best meets a set of predetermined factors.

For more information on this patent, visit this page on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website.

The title of the patent is as follows: Image Capturing Device Having Continuous Image Capture

For a more detailed understanding of what this technology would be able to do, here is the patent abstract:

“Methods, devices, and systems for continuous image capturing are described herein. In one embodiment, a method includes continuously capturing a sequence of images with an image capturing device. The method may further include storing a predetermined number of the sequence of images in a buffer. The method may further include receiving a user request to capture an image. In response to the user request, the method may further include automatically selecting one of the buffered images based on an exposure time of one of the buffered images. The sequence of images is captured prior to or concurrently with receiving the user request.”

This may not always result in the perfect picture, but it will undoubtedly improve the chance of success.

The patent was first filed on October 10, 2012. Ralph Brunner, Nikhil Bhogal and James David Batson are the ones lucky enough to be listed on the patent as inventors.

Do you think Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will ever bring this technology to market if given the chance? It would definitely be a feature that the iPhone could use against the competition.
