Microsoft Launches New iOS Camera App

Microsoft Research has released a new camera app for the iPhone (and iPad) which the company claims is better than Apple's own camera app.

When Microsoft Pix detects faces, it automatically adjusts exposure to help faces look better, even in difficult lighting situations. It also uses a proprietary multi-frame de-noise technology, which uses other burst frames to enhance the Best Image, so faces and backgrounds are as true-to-life as possible. Look for differences in detail on the couple’s faces, in the water, and the patch of blue sky.

It looks pretty interesting and when I get a chance to try it properly, I'll have a full write up over on my Photography blog.
