+ - Apple patents new camera technology->

Submitted by tekgoblin
tekgoblin (1675894) writes "A patent application has surfaced that shows Apple’s attempts at creating a new way for a flash to work on a camera. The way the new flash works is very intriguing, a user can select a dimly lit area of the photo and the camera will try to illuminate just that area with the flash. The way Apple is attempting to accomplish this is similar to the way the autofocus works on the iPhone 4 where you can touch the screen in certain areas to focus on that area. Instead you will be able to light up that area with the flash. This is accomplished by the camera flash passing through a ‘redirector’ so the flash can be placed in a different location other than directly center when a photo is taken."
