On Tuesday, T-Mobile announced the myTouch 4G Slide, a 4G sliding phone aimed at serious phone photographers.

The phone has an 8MP camera and several special photo-centered features, including one piece of tech that could cut down on blurry cameraphone shots.

The feature, called Zero Shutter works by immediately recording when a customer opens the camera application in a memory buffer.  Once a customer clicks the shutter, the phone looks at the timestamp of when a user pressed the button and pulls that image out of the cache.

The myTouch also has a dual-flash and three settings to help users capture panoramic shots, photos in bright light and gives users the ability to take several photos at once in a burst. And, according to T-Mobile, its lens allows users to take pictures with greater depth of field than the iPhone 4.

The phone also has a 4.3-inch screen, 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor and runs Gingerbread, aka Android 2.3 with and HTC Sense overlay. It comes in khaki or black, and is expected to drop sometime in July.
