Get the best of many worlds with this neat photo app
This app takes lots of photographs and combines them into one, for the best of many worlds.
Shoot bright Hydra makes use of the latest software rendering technologies now available to iOS devices. Its main function is taking highdynamic range (HDR) shots. HDR is when the camera takes multiple shots of a scene at different exposure settings and merges them into a single picture.
Hydra performs this function admirably, combining up to 20 exposures in a single output image whose levels can then be tweaked, making it ideal for snapping inspirational scenes on the go. There’s also a video-HDR mode which, although good, isn’t as impressive as static shots, while the low-light mode removes camera noise well, but can’t work miracles.
Hydra’s high-resolution and zoom modes employ a subtle motion technique to recreate highresolution images from a number of low-res ones, but we couldn’t always tell the difference. Ultimately though, Hydra’s HDR mode won us over. It really does make for taking great pictures, even in poor light.
Hydra takes many images and combines them, for a more balanced light in contrasted scenes.
