Thanks to Pro HDR, you no longer have to choose between a blown-out sky or a hopelessly dark foreground. Bringing high dynamic range photography to your iPhone, Pro HDR lets you capture an image exposed for the highlights and another exposed for the shadows. It then automatically aligns and blends the images, giving you a 3-megapixel HDR image.

Brett's 2p'orth: I uploaded this £1.19 App to my iPhone 4, and it works surprisingly well. The image below was taken using the iPhone's Camera App. I used the spot focus facility to choose the most neutral area I could find...

The image is OK, but the highlights on the coffee machine, and the wall behind it, are blown-out.

Using Pro HDR results in a more balanced image...

For best results use a tripod, although the program does its best to align the two images it takes.
