Hydra 1.5 Camera App Update Brings New Zoom and HDR Modes | Mac
High-resolution photography app Hydra received an update today that brings a couple of much-requested improvements to its camera support.
For those unfamiliar with the app, Hydra merges up to 60 individual images to make a single high-quality picture, effectively getting more light from the scene.
In this way, Hydra produces up to 32-megapixel high-resolution images (4x the 8-megapixel sensor resolution), enhanced HDR, better 2x/4x/8x zoom, and reduced camera noise in low-light scenes.
With the just-released version 1.5 update, users can now activate the telephoto camera in Zoom mode on iPhone with double lenses, as well as the front-facing camera in High Dynamic Range and Lo-Light modes.
The update means Hydra users can now take selfies with improved quality in poor lighting conditions, while the Zoom mode can be used in up to 8x for long shots.
Existing users should note that Hydra 1.5 now requires iOS 10 or later to work. The app costs $4.99 and is available to download for iPhone from the App Store. [Direct Link]
