As if it wouldn't be the coolest phone yet, anyway. With all it's safety features and extensive options, though if wished full intigration with all the social networking sites and updates.

#5 That's exactly what it is, if it actually "is"... =P

Which also means that you either have to initialize the buffer before you take your caption (meaning there will be need for pressing "capture" button 2 times), or it simply stores circa 5 sec long loop (longer or shorter) which is then stopped by pressing the capture button, and deleted once the desired caption is saved...

It can be something else of course, but I highly doubt it's going to be that different from what I listed above... There are some inherent disadvantages to this technique: like misplacement on the screen - people can move to side or so... and turning some part of the photo back in time could result in bodies without heads and vice versa... ^^

Also initiated buffer would, once again, require right timing (though it would provide much bigger frame to work with)... and loop-styled buffer would consume battery in a flash not to mention there would have to be some additional memory "physical buffer" (after all, it is deaf video of, let's say, 5MP caption per fraction of second...unless you make it by second, which would probably defeat the purpose of this whole idea)

Now that my thoughts are out of my head I'll take my leave... Enjoy! ^_^

#7 The technology already exists on many consumer and pro camcorders and is called "Pre Recording". Most manufacturers add a 3 second buffer to their camcorders which, when the feature is enabled, constantly record into said buffer and add what's in it to the video file once the record button is actually pressed. The photo application shown here uses the same technology in combination with face detection and photo stitching/merging, as you can select each person individually and pick a moment in time.

Regarding battery drain: I doubt it's an issue at all, when you take a picture where everyone is smiling, or at least supposed to be, you take it in quite a short time as everybody says cheese at once. And with the "time machine" feature you take one photo and adjust every person in it if necessary. With the "old tech" you might have to take multiple pictures to get the perfect one. So you might even end up saving a few milliamperes.
