What's New In This Version:
Halide 1.16: BETTER RAW, THREE WAYS
In our first big update of 2020, we're releasing new groundwork for better RAWs, a safer shooting experience, and other little things that make your life better.

● RESCUE
Sometimes things happen outside your control, like you're shooting at 5% battery and the phone shuts down, losing a photo. Even if these things rarely happen, we want to avoid the slightest chance of losing a photo. That's why we're introducing Rescue.

After you take a photo, we now create a backup copy before save it to your photo library. We only delete that backup once we detect that photo in your library. If you think you've lost a photo, it's easy to check Rescue. Open the photo reviewer, tap the grid icon in the upper left, and then tap the life preserver icon in the upper right.

● SMART RAW IS SMARTER
Based on our research into iOS 13 metering characteristics, we've updated Smart RAW to improve highlight recovery during the data.

● FLAT RAW PREVIEWS
Unedited RAWs look a bit dull to the untrained observer. That's why iOS normally post-processes RAWs before presenting them on screen, to add contrast and liveliness. However, this will get in the way of photographers, who are more interested in seeing those unedited pixels! In this update, we render RAWs "Flat", so you can quickly judge the exposure of your photo without having to jump into an editor.

● OTHER GROUNDWORK
After taking a photo, we now throttle our system to get your pictured into your camera roll as quickly as possible. This reduces the window where bad things can happen.

We've also significantly reduced peak memory usage in depth mode. This should prevent crashes, and just make us a better iPhone citizen.

You can purchase Halide Camera from the App Store for $5.99.
