At the keynote, Kevin Shields talked about some interesting additions for the Nokia Lumia camera.
Smartshoot is a little bit like smartgroups. But instead of taking a photo to find the best expression, smartshoot allows you to remove things that move in the picture. Imagine a scene where people keep walking in front of the person you’re taking a photo of. This removes that problem by taking several pictures and analysing for movement, allowing you to remove aspects of the picture you don’t want to be there.
Something else I found interesting was Cinemagraph. A picture that moves. I thought they just made a GIF creator – which in some ways it is (often cinemagraphs published in gif format). A cinemagraph is a picture first, NOT simply a video turned into a GIF. The moving aspects of the cinemagraph provide a bit of extra emotion to the photo. E.G. moving clouds, shaking blades of grass, jumping kids, a subtle smile etc. The limit is your imagination.
Here’s one from wikipedia. It’s quite subtle but it’s quite pretty.
In Kevin Shield’s demo, he showed a subtle wave of a flag and the girl bending to give a kiss.
The UI is very nice. Just drag where you want something to move.
