• Canon's ‘Subject Blur Correction' Dips Toe into Computational Photography

    1 month ago - By Peta Pixel

    Canon has applied for a patent that would use an in-camera algorithm in tandem with the camera's image stabilization system to intelligently determine the difference between blur caused by motion and blur caused by a moving subject, and correct it.
    First spotted by Asobinet and reported by CanonWatch , the patent describes a way to suppress blur of a subject in a photo by using the image stabilization system in the camera and in the lens.
    In the patent, Canon says that the problem is that blur correction in current cameras isn't able to differentiate between “camera shake” and “subject...
