HDR is all the rage these days. Doing whatever it takes to get the true intensity of colors in a photo makes a lot of sense, as it can really add to the drama and beauty of photos you've taken.You can do this on a computer, and you can also do it on your phone.
HDR Camera+ takes a series of pictures in rapid succession (five or so), fuses them together, and then increases the range of colors in one single, high- resolution picture.
There's a built-in image stabilizer, so you don't need to try and keep your hand unflinchingly steady while all of the pictures are taken. In fact, the only time I saw a blurry picture was when I dramatically swung the camera around after I'd started the process, which speaks volumes about how strong the stabilization and merging processes are. And as always, lighting will play a key factor.
There's also a settings menu where you're able to change things like the color vividness, local contrast, micro contrast, exposure, and noise reduction, so you can tweak your newly HDR'd photos to your liking, before you've taken a single shot.
HDR Camera+ does cost a premium price of $3.99, but for the ability to take high quality HDR pictures all from your phone, that's a small price to pay.
We've got more examples of some HDR shots and download links after the break.
