ClearCam Takes Sharper 4 MegaPixel iPhone Photos

Occipital has released ClearCam, an application that improves the quality of your iPhone camera.

ClearCam takes 6 photos in 2.5 seconds, fuses them together using an algorithm called super resolution, and creates a sharper, 4 megapixel photo with less noise. There is also a QuickShot mode that takes 4 photos in under 2 seconds and saves the sharpest to the camera roll.

The capture and enhance steps have been separated so you can keep snapping photos and enhance them later. It typically takes 30-40 seconds for a good enhancement.

We spent a lot of time optimizing our code to make it run fast enough on the iPhone. A lot of our effort went into being able to align photos precisely with sub-pixel accuracy (required for super resolution), and to also do it fast.

You can install ClearCam from the BigBoss Cydia Repository.

Not ready for release. It's been yanked from the BigBoss Repository. No word on when or if it will be available again. Avoid.

Just had a look and it's still there - why do you say avoid?

I would try but just get a size mismatch on iPhone 3G FW 2.2

Yeah, same here. 3G 2.2 getting size mismatch when downloading from Cydia

Try again! BigBoss' repository was having troubles for a while, causing the Size mismatch. It's working as of now.

It downloaded OK this morning - Thanks Jeff - looks like you were right. Subjectively it looks like the unenhanced pictures are bteter than Snapture! But where are thye pics stored? They don't get imported automativally to my PC and don't appear in the camera roll.
