The iPhone 5 has been touted as having one of the highest quality cameras for taking photos of any smartphone on the market. So What is HDR on iPhone 5? The iPhone 5 makes use of exclusive HDR (high dynamic range) technology to produce images that are deeper, richer and clearer than any photos we’ve seen from a smartphone before. The HDR technology included with the iPhone 5 allows the camera to snap multiple photos in quick succession and then combine them together to produce an image that is the best possible quality.
Close up Portraits
HDR technology excels when taking pictures of objects at close range. The high dynamic range setting will snap multiple photos in extremely quick succession. It usually takes three photos of the same object and then quickly extracts the best parts from each image and combines them into a new image that is deeper, richer and has more saturated colors than a regular photo. HDR is best for outdoor portraits where the subject and background have distinct and harsh lighting differences
