Rich HDR Windows Camera

With Windows Phone Denim Update, Microsoft introduced a new photo experience called Rich Capture, which gives you access to HDR (High Dynamic Range), Dynamic Flash and Dynamic Exposure, allowing you to shoot first and edit the look of the shot after. While Android and iOS offered explicit option to capture HDR images, Microsoft offered it in the name of Rich Capture. Even though you can either enable or disable Rich Capture option, Windows camera app chooses to process the image as HDR image based on the scene. I would like to see Microsoft give more control over this feature in the future.

Coming to the real news, In the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile builds, Microsoft is planning to rename Rich Capture as Rich HDR in their camera app. Renaming makes sense as consumers are now more familiar with HDR branding. If you have been using Rich Capture on your Lumia device, how’s your experience so far? Share it in the comments section below.
