CyanogenMod 10.1 stock camera app now capable of HDR shooting

20 February, 2013 Android


The developers of CyanogenMod announced the merging of HDR functionality into the CM 10.1 camera app yesterday, High Dynamic Range AKA HDR mode is a process that takes multiple images of a shot and then merges them together to produce a single photo. The technique is useful when a scene contains both bright and dark areas, though it can also be used effectively to add some "pop" to an image.


When someone snaps a photo with the function, a total of three pictures (one at minimal, neutral and maximum exposures) are taken and combined into a single HDR image with the help of an algorithm.


Differences in shutter speed, sensors and optics means quality will vary across smartphones, but the CyanogenMod team says that mid- to high-end devices outfitted with decent imaging hardware - especially those with zero shutter lag - should perform admirably. The CyanogenMod team also  recommends using a stand or tripod to thwart movement and vibration from fouling up photos.
