Microsoft update their burst mode camera app Blink

Blink for Windows Phone has been around for a while, it allows you to take a load of pictures at once and then pick the best one and save it for viewing at a later date. Ideal for photographing twitchy kids or sports events.

Well today it’s gone and had an update to allow you to shoot small animations using the frames from the burst of shots.

With BLINK for Windows Phone 8, you’ll never miss the best shot or the action. BLINK captures a burst of images before you even press the shutter, and continues to capture pictures after you’ve taken your shot. Save and share the shot you like best. And better yet, save a short animated BLINK and share it to Facebook, Twitter, or BLINK.so.cl.

With BLINK, a few simple finger swipes lets you find the perfect shot, and create a short animated BLINK to share with your friends or the world.

So what’s new in this version.

Version 2.0
– Camera settings – change camera settings such as scene mode, exposure, white balance and ISO in capture mode
– Animation – Quickly set the motion range for animation in addition to selecting the best shot after capture
– Sharing – Share the animations to BLINK.so.cl, Facebook, or Twitter
– In-app viewing – View the animations in the in-app history, wait for a moment and they start animating!
– Web gallery – From the in-app history, view your shared BLINKs in the web gallery
– Save another – Your BLINKs are always saved within the app. Come back and save another shot to camera roll or change the animation range via “edit” in the in-app history

Whether or not this is to compete with Vine, to catch up with Samsung and HTC or just to offer non Nokia Lumia owners a decent burst mode app, I don’t know.

      Hey Surur, this is Jim from the Socl team (@jameslew). Where is the phishing report coming from? Chrome? We’ll be happy to look into it.

        Yes, but it is not happening any more. Probably a good idea to check google webmaster tools.

          Will do, thanks for the heads up.

    Just tried to upload to Facebook. It uploaded ok but when I clicked on it to view, it went to the website that isn’t there, so as it stands right now the upload is useless.

      Good morning @t8ntlikly:disqus ; you caught us in between the deployment of the apps and the deployment of the website. All should be good now.

        Ok, I just uploaded again to Facebook, and it showed up as a video with a link. Click on the Video and nothing, clicked on the link it took me to the shots that I took (Sorry I deleted it) Nice. Now we can share some of these with friends. ^5
