Microsoft's Pix Camera App for iOS Can Now Capture Mega-Panoramas

Microsoft today updated its Pix camera application or iOS devices and added several new and fun tools. First up is a function called Photosynth, which lets iPhone owners create much wider and taller panorama photos. It provides faster and smoother capture, and uses Pix's auto-enhancement capabilities to improve white balance, tone, and focus in real time. Microsoft ways the tool borrows code from its old stand-alone Photosynth app. The second tool is called Pix Comix and will automatically create comic book-style collages from video clips. Microsoft says its algorithms can identify and assemble the most interesting frames in any given video to paste together a comic strip. Pix Comix specifically seeks out three frames that offer sharp focus, open eyes, and interesting composition. People can then add speech bubbles, as well as rotate and arrange the comic strip to suit their preferences. Microsoft Pix for the iPhone is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
