  • iOS 7 Finally Brings Stock HDR Photography Capabilities to the iPad

    iOS 7 finally gained support for the iPad and iPad Mini in yesterday's afternoon developer seed of iOS 7 Beta 2.

    Out of the many things iOS 7 has done to bring new features and a new interface to iOS devices, one of the smaller but notable changes in features as pointed out by our friends at 9to5Mac is that the iPad can now take advantage of HDR (high-dynamic range) photography. Before iOS 7, the feature was limited to the iPhone or iPod touch.

    Post iPad 2 the iPad has gained much more powerful camera hardware that can most certainly make good use of the HDR technology. Both the iPad with retina display and the iPad Mini come with magnificent 5 megapixel cameras capable of crisp photographs.

    In HDR mode, the device shoots three photographs very quickly in a row. One of the photographs is very bright, one is very dark, and one is with normal lighting. After the photographs are taken, the device then merges all three of the photographs together into one, adding the best qualities of each photograph to eliminate unwanted shadows, bright spots, and other unsightly imperfections for the perfect photograph.

    When shooting with HDR mode in iOS, users have the option to save the original photograph, as well as the HDR photograph. The HDR photographs are marked in the Camera Roll with little HDR labels so the user knows which photographs are HDR and which photographs are regular.

      HDR truly makes for better pictures, but you better be able to hold still.

      Who uses an iPad for photography? Probably the same people who enjoy a galaxy note...

      I use an iPad for photography, what of it? I have also exhibited those photos nationally and internationally(in real galleries, the internet doesn't count)
      Good photos are taken by good photographers, not good cameras.
