Do you remember when we talked about Lytro, a camera that would allow you to choose your focus points as and when you needed it AFTER you took the shot? It wasn’t something I’d expect coming to a camera phone anytime soon, so colour me surprised when someone made it into an app that actually does work.
You hold the camera still and it ‘records’ several focus points. You can then tap to where you want the focus to be and it will (or should) refocus. You can also press the buttons on the side to change focus points frame by frame. This works as a camera lens app too. I’ve only tested this briefly as I woke up at an inappropriate time this morning (bit ill/feverish) I’ll try and test it out again in the morning. The first image is a stock one.
It’s very quick, taking about a second to take a picture (asking you to hold steady)
The images are maxed at 1280×720. OK for social sharing I guess.
Basically, I think it uses the fast AF on my 920 to capture several frames at different focus points.
Give it a go for free or you can purchase it for just £0.79/$0.99. I’m really liking this app :).
Cheers Derrek for the tip
