The example used in the demonstration at BlackBerry World showed two people having their photo taken; when one of the subjects had her eyes closed in the finished shot, the photographer was able to select her face and wind back, frame by frame, to find a moment when her eyes were open. With this moment found, only this portion of the final photo was amended.

My Take: After exposure photo editing isn't a new thing (Lytro did this cool thing where you can shift focus, more in this Wired Article) But this is an interesting spin. It's something that I recall Microsoft trying to implement with Windows Live Photo Gallery's Photo Fuse Feature. It works great but Blackberry's execution looks smoother and more intuitive without having to patch other photos. What do you think?
