I take a lot of photos with whatever phone I happen to be using as my main driver, and in the last couple of months, it’s been the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I just gotta say… this phone is fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And when it comes to the camera, it is no slouch. It absolutely rocks. One of the shiny recent additions added to the stock camera is HDR mode. It is no DSLR by any stretch, but it definitely gets the job done.
To access the app, click on “Shooting Mode” then scroll down to “HDR”.
Now, all you need to do is point and shoot. The camera app does all of the basic post-editing for you within 5 seconds. When you snap the picture, make sure to hold your device as steady as possible until the loading bar completes, so you can be sure that you don’t get any motion blur in your image. And that’s that!
Here’s a couple of examples of HDR, from photos I’ve recently taken:
Not bad, not bad! Again, I did not edit these photos in any sort of fashion. This is all done within the app itself, within 5 seconds of automatic processing. Truly remarkable effort by Samsung to bring high quality imaging to their flagship phone. I mean, phablet. Cheers!
