[prMac.com] Columbus, Ohio - Toccata Technologies today is pleased to introduce ReelCam Pro 1.0 - Time Shifting Camera for iOS, its remarkable app that lets users rapidly shoot 6 to 10 versions of a group photo and then select the best facial expression on each person, which are all seamlessly stitched into a final result photo. Ideal for creating perfect group photos, the app includes auto face detection and manual mode for pets. The app surpasses the capabilities of the critically acclaimed Time Shift Camera in the BlackBerry 10.

Photographers of all levels of expertise quickly learn: the odds of capturing the perfect group photo go down as the number of subjects in the photo goes up. Shooting a photo where two people look their best is challenging, but a photo where six people are all simultaneously smiling and looking at the camera is nearly impossible. Browsing through group photos, everyone agrees that there is at least one photo where they look good, but it is the picture where others do not. Now, with ReelCam Pro, photographers can magically capture everyone at their best in one photograph.
From the app's preferences, users can choose between 6 to 10 photos at intervals of 0.1, 0.2, or 0.3 seconds, at High, Medium, or Low resolution. ReelCam Pro stores all the photos in cache and displays photo #1 full screen. Tapping on any face opens a large window with a horizontal slider at the bottom. From here, users can scroll through all the various versions of that face, selecting the best by leaving it visible. If the app does not detect a face (e.g., a pet), users can manually add a face and adjust it exactly the same way. With every face selected in this way, users just touch the Process button. Instantly, a preview is displayed, while the final result is processed in the background. ReelCam Pro uses a proprietary, digital-image processing algorithm to "stitch" all the selected faces into a perfect photo. There are no mismatches or processing artifacts - the final photo appears unretouched.
"Snapping a good portrait photo takes practice, because you have to click at just the right time," commented Eric Lu of Toccata Technologies. "ReelCam Pro lets you rewind time, so you can print and share a picture that is perfect, a picture that captures 'just the right time' for every person in the photo. We are extremely proud that ReelCam Pro can not only take a perfect group shot, but also do it at a full-resolution 8MP on iPhone 5. There is no other app in App Store that do that."
* iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5, and iPod touch (4th/5th generation)
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
