Bring HDRI capabilities to your normal phone camera for beautiful results

Latest Nokia Symbian^3 supported phones come with best cameras out there. But to increase their quality you really need to use this app if you love taking photographs of scenery using HDRI.

For those who donot know; HDR is a technique to combine high dynamic range of colors in real life and capture them in one image. With normal cameras this is not possible. How HDR works on software end is that it takes multiple pictures of same scene at different exposure settings to capture different elements of photo better and then the software combines them to make one image which shows real dynamic range of colors in real scene closer. End result is color range actually as seen by human eye rather than limited range of camera which normally dulls out high variance of light and shadows in one photo.

e.g. see sample below sample shown on WikiPedia:

This is what this symbian app does, it takes 3 photos at different exposures and combines them into one image to capture the real colors / light variance of a scene. So, if you are owner of a Nokia phone with great camera like N8 then consider this an essential app.

Buy the app @ Nokia Ovi store
