So i have the latest GM seed, of iOS4.1 and the HDR photo's do look hot. Although you get some weirdness and ghosting should your hand wobble slightly, or the subject matter moves.

I think you will be all pleased with it, and you can always stick with the original if you dont like it.

Doesn't work with the flash, i think its something to do with the way it takes photos. Anyone got any tips on this?

( and 4.1 according to Uk store is out on the 8th sept, via gizmodo.com)

interesting to see how it performs on the older models (if this is even enabled) I know for the inexperienced people handling the iphone4 they often accidentally take two photos in quick succession simply because they hit the shutter button twice without knowing. the response is amazing for a phone and one can only anticipate this to improve (or demand) even better in the next model.

So does it take multiple shots with + and - exposures or does it take just one shot and filter it with software ?

Serious photographers use RAW formats to achieve HDR as thus format saves several stops of exposure data and can yield amazing results. Though if overdone HDR can look unnatural.

Maybe the iPhone 5 or 6 will support the RAW format, that would be interesting.

My unbderstanding is that it takes 3 shots at varying exposures then melds them together to give you the HDR effect.

and you probably have to hold the phone steady 3x longer too. and it would not work too well if you have moving objects

I tried it out last week and found that there is some blurring when taking pictures of fast moving objects, but regular photos come up awesome with HDR. I wouldn't use it all the time though.

Same but its awesome for well lit portraits.


Yes, its only for iPhone 4 is my understanding too. It does take 3 in succession, and merges, and then saves the HDR and the original, (HDR one has a little logo in the corner), its a bit annoying having to wait slightly longer, like milliseconds for the hdr one to save.

But its good, as if you do have a blurry one you have an original too.*







*results my vary, see info for details, blah blah blah

I'm certainly looking forward to this as I'm always struggling to get decent contrast and balance on my phone...and since it's optional you get the best of both worlds. Though, it really needs better image stabilisation if my photos are any indication.
