Thanks for the note. Regarding face blurring, I think you are thinking
of ObscuraCam, and not CameraV (which is an encrypted camera for
evidence gathering).

ObscuraCam in fact does offer a full pixel removal "black bar" option.
In addition, we don't blur the photos, but actually pixelate them using
a technique that is resistant to the kind of reconstruction you mention.
  You can find some of the native code we use here:
