Canon Blink Shot Cameras Won't Shoot Till Everyone's Eyes Are Open

Image for article titled Canon Blink Shot Cameras Won't Shoot Till Everyone's Eyes Are Open

There's one in every picture. Some fool who ruins your shot by closing their eyes just as you hit the shutter button. Well, Canon's looking to make that a thing of the past with their new Blink Shot technology, which won't let you take a picture if your subject's eyes are closed. I normally look half asleep in my photos, so this might be worth checking out, though I don't see it being anything more than a gimmicky feature for point and shoots. No word yet on when we'll see the feature in cameras.

I just do it the easy way. Photoshop the picture, copy the eyes from a friend, and paste it on the closed eyes.
