True HDR

True HDR Delivers Amazing Results

I spent some time in Sweden over the weekend hang out with colleagues and one of the places I went was just off the ocean. I walked down to the water front the scene was breathtaking and so serene. Although I had my Nikon D7000 in the back of the car, I just didn’t feel like walking back up the hill to get it. I pulled out my iPhone, fired up the True HDR App and captured the scene. Although I’ve had this App on my iPhone 4s for a while now, I hadn’t really used it much. I was blown away by not only the ease of use, but also by the results!

First of all I shot this HDR hand held and with an iPhone it’s impossible to hold it perfectly still for three shots. Therefore there will be some position shifting between the three exposures. Not only did True HDR merge them together, but it also automatically corrected for the overlap. I eventually transfered the image to my computer just so that I could zoom in on it in Photoshop and check the detail and it was very sharp!


You have the option of having the process fully automated in that it snaps the three exposures for you and then you merge them together as one High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo right inside the App. Or you can capture the shots manually. Once the HDR has been merged you can then use the built-in sliders to adjust the results to your taste. I know that HDR is not for everyone. Some people love it, some people despise it. I view HDR as something that is fine to use on occasion and have no real problem with it. This is by far the best HDR App I’ve seen on iOS.

I don’t really have anything that I would like added or fixed in the App. This is one of those rare occasions where I can easily grant this one a 5 star rating!
