Meet Blink, a Windows Phone 8 app that takes photos in bulk so you can always nail the moment

Microsoft Research has released a new application called ‘Blink‘ for the Windows Phone 8 platform that will help even the most amateur photographer get a shot at just the right moment.

Blink accomplishes this by shooting oodles of pictures in quick succession, denoted by a flashing of the screen, which can then be sorted through one at at time, allowing the user to save the best of the bunch. Think of the app as a way to shoot an exploded GIF of any moment, and pick the the choicest image from the lot.

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

If you want a good shot of someone going over a jump, Blink could help you snag a photo of the best angle, without you having to work too hard. Microsoft Research put together a stunningly soporific clip explaining the pretty neat app:

Snag it here if its your sort of jam.

It’s worth noting that a BlackBerry 10 announcement last year showed the inclusion of a similar feature, meaning Blink is hardly revolutionary. Nevertheless, it could be a fun feature extension for Windows Phone fans.
