    Do BlackBerry have a patent on the TimeShift? If not, nothing they can really do about it.

    BlackBerry doesn't actually own TimeShift. They licensed it from a firm (Scalado) that has since been bought by Nokia. Sony may well have licensed the same technology; I don't know that BB had an exclusive on it.

    A patent wouldn't do any good because this is different functionality. A trademark might be useful, though.

    What's funny is some of the comments saying how cool it is, great work Sony. Had BlackBerry marketed properly, they'd know it isn't a new thing!

    That's not something blackberry make, they license the technology from someone else. It's not their's to begin with. And burst mode is on any other phones in the market. Why get all **** hurt about it. Different ways of taking the best shots why get all mad about it and not appreciate the technology behind it all

    Nobodies got time to use time shift feature anyways. I don't feel like that's what BlackBerry 10 is known for.

    I think I might have used this once on my z10. Not really concerned if someone uses something similar.

    Android phones such as the Note 2 already had this feature before BB10 phones even came out.

    *sigh* No, they didn't.

    What OTHER phones have had before is the ability to take a bunch of frames in a burst, and give you the chance to pick the best one. That's only one small piece of TimeShift.

    The bigger part that nobody else had is the ability to adjust multiple faces. If you take a picture of six people, you can adjust each face to a different point in time, if you need to, to get the best shot.

    That's the coolest part of TimeShift on BB10, and I don't think BlackBerry's advertising has made that incredibly clear.

    For all intense purposes, it is roughly the same thing. BB10 just does a much better job at it.
    The average person isn't going to know the difference. My friend's Note 2 did do multiple faces. And when I tried to show him how mine differed when I finally got my Q10, he and everyone else basically didn't see it as a big deal since a similar feature already existed on another phone.

    Exactly, taking a burst of frames has been done for a very long time. The key improvement on BlackBerry's time shift is its ability to segment faces in your image and the corresponding region in the stack of frames, allowing you to easily select one with a clock-like interface, and then fairly seamlessly blending the face areas back into the original image.

    Ever try to take a picture of a sugared-up 5-year old? I agree that it isn't/shouldn't be what BB10 is known for, but I do use it all of the time.

    Same. ALL the time. I just wish the flash worked with it.

    Time shift was around on galaxies by another name before bb10 released and now exists even on nokias. It's really not that big a deal
