HDR Photography sometimes involves taking more photographs than one bracketed set allows, and working out the exposure settings required to cover the scene's dynamic range.
The HDR Exposure Calculator makes it quick and easy to find the number of exposures and bracketed sets to take, and the settings to use. The app takes the shortest and longest shutter speeds required for the scene, as well the camera's exposure bracketing range, and compiles a report listing:
- How many photos are needed in total
- How many AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketed) sets to take
- How many shots in each
- What exposure settings to use
The app is particularly helpful for photographers who need the best quality for their HDR merged results when photographing scenes with very dark and bright parts, such as real estate interiors with bright windows.
Ratings and Reviews
One simple feature will put it over the top
When I want to adjust my shadow or highlight reading, the scroll wheel starts back at basically 0 instead of at my current selection. If my shadows are at 1/30 and my highlights are at 1/250, then I want to change both values one exposure value, have the exposure selection wheel open up at the current exposure setting.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
