Join us on Facebook:http://facebook.com/mobilehdr and on Flickr:http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected] HDR------------Reallife scenes often have a wide range of light intensity, whichcannot be captured by a camera. In a photo of such a scene thebright areas look washed out and everything in shadows is picturedas a black spot with no details. The HDR technique allows you tocapture details in bright and dark areas and have them merged in asingle photo.HDR photography is widely adopted by professionalphotographers. Wouldn't it be nice to have an HDR in mobilephones?The problem is that HDR requires taking several differentlyexposed images in series, which must be precisely aligned and thenfused. In order to be usable for real life scenes, the HDR featureshould include moving object detection and hand shake compensationto avoid or minimize the ghosting in the final image. That requiresa lot of computational resources and makes a challenge even forprofessional desktop HDR software.Almalence has brought itsexpertise in professional HDR software to mobile phones. Our HDRfusion algorithms compensate hand shaking and detect moving objectsin the scene, suppressing ghosting artifacts. At the same time, thealgorithms are quick enough to provide comfortable processing timeon mobile devices.Additional info and facts* Available foriOS/iPhone/iPad as well.* Human eye has a built-in HDR-likeprocessing which increases effective dynamic range nearly 10,000times!* Painters such as van Gogh used techniques similar to ToneMapping

What are the problems taking good quality pictureswith camera phones and is there a way to solve them and bridge thegap between camera phones and compact cameras?You may think thereis very little difference between a cell phone camera and apoint-and-shoot camera. Nowadays, mobile phone cameras have enoughmegapixels. The phones have enough storage capacity. Even the lensquality is not as bad as before and can compete with low-endcompact cameras.At the same time, a big gap still exists when itcomes to the basis of photography – the light source. If you takepictures in daylight, you may be satisfied with the quality ofmobile images. However, when you move to a less bright indoorenvironment, you start to notice the difference. Mobile imagesappear to have more noise, they are usually blurry and lack detailin shadows. Bright areas turn into pure-white spots. Faces seemunnaturally flat, especially when using a flash. Getting into adarker environment extends the gap. While images taken with aregular camera are not very good but still do show a scene, mobileimages become unacceptably blurry and show almost nothing butsmeared lights and the camera’s own noise.Almalence, Inc. hasdeveloped a technology that combines a special exposure mode andsoftware post-processing to greatly reduce the blur effects andimprove dynamic range.===FAQQ: Isn't it better to use the standardcamera and then improve the photos in Photoshop?A: It is alwaysbetter to take a quality image than to improve a bad one. It isusually impossible to remove heavy blur or reduce high noisewithout losing image details.Night Camera does not apply deblurringor noise reduction filters to a standard image, it gets a betterimage from the sensor.

A numberof frames has to be taken or special optics (fisheye) should beused.In these cases panorama is the solution.Usually, panorama onmobile devices is shoot using either of two methods:- sweeppanorama - shooting is running continuously, and camera is rotatedslowly and smoothly to capture entire scene.- pan-and-shootpanorama - multiple separate frames are shot: shoot - rotate -shoot - rotate, etc.Both cases have their own drawbacks.In case ofsweep panorama the shooting is actually happening in video mode andthe height of panorama is limited by maximum resolution forshooting video (for the majority of mobile devices it is 1280pixels). Also, it is impossible to get sharp result under low-lightillumination, since camera is always in movement, and exposure foreach frame is rather long. On the other hand, on devices withoutgyroscope, sweep panorama usually will give better stitchingresults.Pan-and-shoot method allow to shoot panorama of maximumresolution, limited only by amount of available free memory ondevice. If device is equipped with gyro - it is possible to rotatecamera quickly from one shot to another. In this case it is alsopossible to select the most appropriate focusing mode: autofocus,focus to infinity, or continuous focusing.HD Panorama implementsboth shooting methods.One of the problems while shooting panorama -the necessity to strictly keep camera orientation to avoiddistortion of horizon line, and to avoid 'curvature' on framesequence. Otherwise only a narrow area will come out as a result ofstitching. In HD Panorama there are 'augmented reality' guides.These are showing clearly how to orient camera to get ideal result.When using augmented reality - it is simply impossible to shoot theframe which will drop out of panorama line of sight.HD Panorama isstitching frames taking into account possible deviations inillumination between frames and presence of moving objects inpanorama field. HD Panorama is reproducing dynamic range of thescene to the maximum extent and minimizing the moving objectsstitching errors (ghosting removal).If you are a professionalphotographer, HD Panorama will allow to save the input framescaptured, and stitch and possibly adjust them on your personalcomputer.For user convenience HD Panorama uses elements of GoogleCamera app UI under Apache license.
