High Dynamic Range (HDR)

HDR is a feature that lets you take pictures of scenes with very dark and very light areas. The app takes two photos at different exposures and combines them to make one HDR photo. By default the app will save the original exposures and open an HDR editor but this behaviour can be changed from the settings menu.

Some features are only available on newer devices.

Camera apps are notoriously difficult to make compatible with all hardware.
Please install and test the trial version first before you buy the paid app.

I like it - may not be perfect (but plenty of updates and refining from the dev). i use it a lot. super clean interface, quality and plenty of options. i wish the exposure controls were also active on video (ie. low light).and a couple of other things but over all it's a 5 star for me. Thanks

Nowhere near the same quality HDR I was getting with my Note 3 before I rooted it. I was hoping this app would come close because I like the look of the UI, but even that is buggy. You need to do a bit more research into HDR. You're suppose to use 3 images not 2. I bought the app because I figured the HDR would be somewhat decent but it's no better than auto mode in my other FREE camera apps. Please take a look at some HDR images on Google image search and figure out how to make it better. Then I'll re-rate it.

Great camera with all the settings at my fingertips! Was recommended by one of the developers on XDA. Bought the app and have not used any other camera since. It simply works and I can easily access all the settings I need.
