It was way back in 2010 that we last heard anything much from InVisage Technologies, when it talked about making a new type of camera sensor suitable for smartphones, capable of producing dramatically better HDR pictures and videos than traditional sensors. It calls the tech QuantumFilm, and – five years later – it announced the final product. Here’s everything we know about it.
Lightroom mobile’s in-app camera is getting an update today that’ll let it capture RAW HDR photos.Adobe says the photos are made by stitching together three RAW images. That in itself is pretty standard process for creating an HDR photo, but Adobe claims it can deliver “greatly increased dynamic range” over what your phone would typically put out.The typical benefits of shooting in RAW remain here, too. You get a 32-bit file with more color information and more flexibility to alter the exposure or white balance. As usual, Adobe is using its own DNG format for the RAW files.
