Apple Patent Reveals New Camera System

A new patent application has been filed by Apple [AAPL] that shows a new camera system.

The new camera system uses a new camera flash that is optimised based on what the subject of the scene is. By using a flash redirector, imaging sensors that sense conditions and a touchscreen, it aims to capture better pictures.

The system might be used to direct more light to the dark parts of a photo to more evenly light the scene. If a dark spot is seen on the touchscreen, you could just tap to illuminate the dark portion.

It is expected that if Apple go ahead and create something with this patent that the system could eventually land in iOS based devices as well as laptops and desktop computers.
