Rob should appreciate this one:
Digital images featuring someone in mid-blink could be banished forever using an image-analysis system for cameras developed in Japan.
The system developed by Kaneko’s team gets around the problem by snapping 15 frames in 0.5 seconds after the shutter button is clicked. A computer then rapidly analyses these image, discarding those in which the subject is blinking, leaving photographer with a better final snap.
