Not that interesting.

#1 looks from the title like it's an "automatic opening" lens cover for a retractable lens commonly found on P&S digitals. 95% likelihood that it is an "implementation/anti-cloning" patent that covers their specific retractable lens implementation, as retractable lenses with automatic covers are nothing new. I'll need to read the abstract for more info.

#2 - Without reading the abstract, it looks to me like that is related to the movable image sensor for SR.
