Real life scenes often have a wide range of light intensity, which cannot be captured by a camera. In a photo of such a scene the bright areas look washed out and everything in shadows is pictured as a black spot with no details. The HDR technique allows you to capture details in bright and dark areas and have them merged in a single photo.
HDR photography is widely adopted by professional photographers. Wouldn't it be nice to have an HDR in mobile phones?

The problem is that HDR requires taking several differently exposed images in series, which must be precisely aligned and then fused. In order to be usable for real life scenes, the HDR feature should include moving object detection and hand shake compensation to avoid or minimize the ghosting in the final image. That requires a lot of computational resources and makes a challenge even for professional desktop HDR software.

Almalence has brought its expertise in professional HDR software to mobile phones. Our HDR fusion algorithms compensate hand shaking and detect moving objects in the scene, suppressing ghosting artifacts. At the same time, the algorithms are quick enough to provide comfortable processing time on mobile devices.

Basic HDR Camera

This camera app records photos in true HD resolution and includes filters to apply after the picture is taken. Somewhat confusing the first time you take photos, as there are no instructions whatsoever. Once you hit the capture button, it records multiple shots in succession to create the best photo. In this sense, it works well. There is a problem with exposure and colorization though. Photos come out clear but overblown and unnaturally colored. This can be repaired slightly however, with the filters included. For the price, this app is missing a lot. It requires export options, zoom function, geotagging and rotation at least. Until then it is difficult for me to recommend this app.

High Dynamic Range HDR

Decent high dynamic range photos. Some ghosting but that is my fault. Unsteady hands are my fault. Bracketing is okay. When I shoot HDR on my digital camera, I always use a tripod. IPads do not. If you have steady hands then I would recommend it.

By the way, some reviews appear to confuse high definition resolution with high dynamic range (HDR) imaging. HDR combines several shots of the same image overcoming the limitations of single shot photography. Shadows are deeper. Highlights have greater detail. Ghosting is caused by unsteady hands or changes in lineup between the bracketed shots.


I think the iphone itself HDR is good enough, this app however made everything too rich in color and exposure which ended a little unnatural look for me, but everyone have different taste though, the app itself is great, the result difffers.
