Mitsubishi develops "flutter shutter" for deblurring pics

This new tech from some Mitsubishi tackles the motion blur problem thanks to a relatively simple “flutter shutter” attachment on the actual camera. Their device uses a coded exposure sequence to cut a normal exposure into short burst, allowing processing software to sharpen any fast moving objects in the picture. The prototype is based on an 8 megapixel Canon PowerShot Pro1, but the method can apparently be applied to any camera, and would even work as a built-in feature on a consumer cam — though it’ll probably be a few years before it trickles down that far.
