Posted by · 6345 views · Translate

The Hydra camera app has been updated with support for the telephoto lens in Zoom mode on iPhones with dual lenses; as well as, support for the front camera in HDR & Lo-Light modes.

Hydra offers innovative photo capture technology, and lets you take beautiful pictures even in the most difficult lighting conditions, which makes it a great companion to iOS Camera app.

Features:
Hydra captures more light by merging up to 60 frames to make a single high-quality picture (less noise, more highlights/shadows) on iPhone and iPad. Hydra also goes beyond the 8- or 12-megapixel sensor limit, with up to 32-megapixel high-resolution images. It uses the latest evolutions of iPhone and iPad camera hardware, as well as the latest camera APIs and GPU rendering technologies.

Hydra provides 5 specific capture modes: HDR, Video-HDR, Lo-Light, Zoom, and Hi-res modes.

• Hydra's High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode is based on an alternate method that captures up to 20 images and that is made to handle even the most difficult lighting conditions.
• Video-HDR uses single-image tone mapping and device-specific sensor mode (iPhone 6) to create stunning videos.
• Lo-Light mode removes sensor noise by merging together multiple images and amplifying light by a factor of 10 to provide a better image quality.
• Zoom mode uses real-time, super-resolution technique to recreate missing pixels from hand motion, producing 2x, 4x and 8x scale factors with more details than the standard digital zooming technique(*).
• Hi-res mode produces up to 32MP images from the regular 8 or 12MP camera sensor, providing finer details in captured image(*).
• As of version 1.5, Hydra supports the telephoto and front cameras respectively in Zoom and Lo-Light/HDR modes.

Hydra also features a photo gallery for reviewing images and their metadata, directly linked with built-in iOS photo album, thus avoiding duplicates and allowing to flag as favorites.

(*) recommended for static & distant scenery. Rendering artifacts can occur for scenes with parallax and for moving subjects.

What's New In This Version:
Hydra 1.5 now supports the telephoto camera in Zoom mode on iPhone with double lenses as well as the front camera in HDR & Lo-Light modes. Hydra can now take selfies, with much improved quality in poor lighting conditions, and Zoom mode can also go up to 8x from now on.

- Added support for the telephoto lens in Zoom Mode.
- Added support for the front camera to take selfies in HDR and Lo-light modes.

- Hydra 1.5 now requires iOS 10.0.

You can purchase Hydra from the App Store for $4.99.
