4.0 out of 5 stars Better details and contrast, September 22, 2011

This review is from: HDR Camera+ (App)
I have HTC Incredible (1st generation) from Verizon Wireless.

This app took 3 pictures for each photo you want to shoot. Seems one is lighter, one normal, and one darker. All three pictures combines, using better one of three for each area into a final picture.

Pro: More details and contrast. Human eyes adjust almost instantly when the eyes dart from dark to light to dark ... while a camera has only one choice of brightness at a single moment to cover dark and light areas, so for a very constrasty scene, pictures come out either too dark in some area and too light in other area (for example, early twilight with beautiful sky and already darkened trees). HDR supposed to fix this, and HDR Camera+ definitely fixed this, and created much more usesable pictures.

Con: I would like to have more choice, such as 3 or 5 or 7 pictures combined into one - I would have and see more details. I would like to have control over range of over and under exposures, instead of fixed/automatic. I would like to be able to adjust the camera opening (brightness) as what is normal/average (instead of having auto exposure by phone's camera). Also, zoom control. My camera has zoom control in stock mode, but no zoom capability in HDR Camera+.

Overall, I like this app. I'm sure I will use HDR Camera+ much more than the stock camera app.

@DTS - it's useful feature that the developer can easily incorporate into the app. The combining of 5 or 7, can just be extended from current 3 pictures. The other features are already existing in built-in phone's app, probably just need to look up the API, incorporate, and test.

I already have a $600+ DSLR. Does not have HDR built-in. I may buy one of those compact, such as Sony DSC-TX10 or Panasonic TS2/3.

It may not be called HDR, but most DSLR cameras can take multiple shots with different exposure settings.

I tried HDR on Canon ELPH 310HS recently. This app is actually much better. On Canon 310HS, I took a pic including two people move slightly --- in final picture, I had good background, but blurry people. Using HDR+ on Android, taken picture of mostly static picture with a car slightly moved --- in final picture, the software took into account of slightly moving handheld device, plus possible moving subjects --- I had perfectly clear and sharp picture.
