Hydra - Amazing Photography

By Creaceed SPRL

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Hydra offers innovative photo capture technology, and lets you take beautiful pictures even in the most difficult lighting conditions, which makes it a great companion to iOS Camera app.

Hydra captures more light by merging up to 60 frames to make a single high-quality picture (less noise, more highlights/shadows) on iPhone and iPad. Hydra also goes beyond the 8-megapixel sensor limit, with up to 32-megapixel high-resolution images. It uses the latest evolutions of iPhone and iPad camera hardware, as well as the latest camera APIs and GPU rendering technologies.

Hydra provides 5 specific capture modes: HDR, Video-HDR, Lo-light, Zoom, and Hi-res modes.

• Hydra's High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode is based on an alternate method that captures up to 20 images and that is made to handle even the most difficult lighting conditions.
• Video-HDR uses single-image tone mapping and device-specific sensor mode (iPhone 6) to create stunning videos.
• Lo-light mode removes sensor noise by merging together multiple images and amplifying light by a factor of 10 to provide a better image quality.
• Zoom mode uses real-time, super-resolution technique to recreate missing pixels from hand motion, producing 2x and 4x scale factors with more details than the standard digital zooming technique(*).
• Hi-res mode produces up to 32MP images from the regular 8MP camera sensor, providing finer details in captured image(*).

Hydra also features a photo gallery for reviewing images and their metadata, directly linked with built-in iOS photo album, thus avoiding duplicates and allowing to flag as favorites.

(*) recommended for static & distant scenery. Rendering artifacts can occur for scenes with parallax and for moving subjects.

What's New in Version 1.3.4

Great For Zoom/32MP And *Sometimes* HDR

This app uses a wonderful algorithm of stacking photos to create noise-free clarity and then enlarges the result to allow either a 32 MP picture or a very clean 2X or 4X zoom. Although when viewed at the pixel level you can see some minor artifacts and a bit of a plasticy look, the result is still terrific. You will find it helpful to retouch your results with some clarity and/or structure tweaks as the output is somewhat soft. And of course, always shoot using the native camera app with no zoom as back up.

I would love to see the developers provide an option to do all of this with the second camera in the iPhone 7 Plus. It would allow an 8X zoom and would really set this app apart.

The HDR feature in this app runs hot and cold. On some scenes it provides a beautiful broad and dramatic look that looks natural and elegant. On others, the HDR result is horsey and smokey and look horrendous. But I always try it out because you never know what you will get.

I'm not impressed with the other features of this app which are pretty useless. It's low light feature is soft and allows no exposure compensation. And the video HDR bounces around too much with its light levels to be usable.

Still, this app rates five stars because what it does well, it does tremendously well. And no other app is stacking photos for a pretty innovative approach to zooming or super-high resolution. As such I highly recommend this app.

Love this App for Still Photos

Fantastic app for taking hi-Rez and "telephoto" photographs of non-moving subjects. Movement will cause blur, which may be a desired effect e.g. Like using ND filters to blur moving water, or simply to have motion blur. When traveling, it is like packing a zoom lens for your phone. NB: you do *not* need a tripod - app actually needs the natural hand shake movement caused when trying to hold your phone still in order to work. Amazing.


I bought this thinking it would help me take photos of my tennis team, but every photo turned out blurry. If you are taking a completely still, nothing moving at all photo, then this is for you. However if the wind blows and you can't keep something still, it won't work. Sadly, I spent money on this.
