    My iPhone from 3 years ago had HDR in the built-in camera, and it took them instantly. They looked good and I didn't have to hold the phone steady for ages like with the HDR apps. What did Apple do that the apps aren't doing?

    Probably the same as any other smartphone with a built in HDR mode. The only thing it it does is adding a "HDR" filter. It is not taking pictures in different exposures which will leave out a lot of detail. It's hardly an HDR image to be honest but i guess they have to call it that for the sales argument, "now we have revolutionary hdr mode"... Or not ;-)
    Many photo manipulation apps for smart phones have an HDR filter, but it doesn't come near a true HDR picture.

    At least in that photo, HDR appears a lot like what a photographer might do if they positioned lights or reflectors to get light on the underexposed areas of the picture, and post processed over-exposed areas. The effect is pretty natural to my eye under the roof, Im not sure about the countryside behind it, which would certainly requre some pretty fancy auxiliary lighting to achieve. I think saying HDR is not true photography is like saying more than one light source (including reflectors) is not true photography. I may have to see if there is an HDR app for my lowly 521.

    HDR app lightens it nicely but it makes the background look incredibly flat.

    Yeah that background treatment bothered me. I think if I were doing it manually with 3 images, I would have left the background woods alone, but an app would have to be pretty smart to do that.

    Is that from this HDR app?
