    Apple iPhone 4 HDR....

    So, what do ya'll think....just to let everyone know I have no clue about anything when it comes to Photography...I just updated my phone and when I went to take a picture I saw a new button that said HDR off so I turned it on.

    A bright sunny day is a bad way to test the HDR. Wait until the hour before sunset and find a good shot that has a high dynamic range. You'll be able to get a good before and after with that.

    The HDR algorithm on the iPhone is really good for situations where you have bright sunlight streaming in a window in a somewhat dark room, or other, similar situations. It's not really about creating the overdone, cartoony HDR creations that we sometimes see.

    ^ Exactly, or if you get up early enough catch it right before a full sunrise. You need a wide range of light and shade with a little of everything in between if you want it to look right. As far as the HDR ability of the Iphone... I haven't tried it but it can only do so much for you, I don't think you will ever get that full HDR look unless you just use a DSLR camera and take your own exposures.

    The "HDR" photo which is the second one shows alot more detail...especially on the WRX its self...either way it's not a bad little camera for a cell phone! I don't even carry my digital camera or my HD videocamera anywhere anymore...
