Want To Add HDR To The iPad's Camera App? Download iOS 7 This Fall
Apple fans looking to add a high dynamic range (HDR) photography option to the iPad's built-in Camera app will be pleased to learn that the feature is incoming in iOS 7. In fact, HDR for iPad has already been added in iOS 7 beta 2, which launched yesterday for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, according to 9to5Mac. It's a minor change, but one iPad photographers will nevertheless appreciate. As a reminder, HDR photography was added to the iPhone in iOS 4.1, and creates an overall image from three separate photographs captured at differing exposure levels.
