Hydra offers innovative photo capture technology, and lets you take beautiful pictures even in the most difficult lighting conditions, which makes it a great companion to iOS Camera app. Hydra captures more light by merging up to 60 frames to make a single high-quality picture (less noise, more highlights/shadows) on iPhone and iPad. Hydra also goes beyond the 8-megapixel sensor limit, with up to 32-megapixel high-resolution images. It uses the latest evolutions of iPhone and iPad camera hardware, as well as the latest camera APIs and GPU rendering technologies. Hydra provides 5 specific capture modes: HDR, Video-HDR, Lo-light, Zoom, and Hi-res modes. • Hydra's High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode is based on an alternate method that captures up to 20 images and that is made to handle even the most difficult lighting conditions. • Video-HDR uses single-image tone mapping and device-specific sensor mode (iPhone 6) to create stunning videos. • Lo-light mode removes sensor noise by merging together multiple images and amplifying light by a factor of 10 to provide a better image quality. • Zoom mode uses real-time, super-resolution technique to recreate missing pixels from hand motion, producing 2x and 4x scale factors with more details than the standard digital zooming technique(*). • Hi-res mode produces up to 32MP images from the regular 8MP camera sensor, providing finer details in captured image(*). Hydra also features a photo gallery for reviewing images and their metadata, directly linked with built-in iOS photo album, thus avoiding duplicates and allowing to flag as favorites. (*) recommended for static & distant scenery. Rendering artifacts can occur for scenes with parallax and for moving subjects.



  • Not a great camera

    By Hdidjejeowdi
    The settings it has are very limited, and the ones it does have are not that great. The low-light doesn’t appear any different than the normal camera, and the ‘32mp’ is doubtfully that quality. Zooming in to the max doesn’t appear any different from a normal photo.
  • Junk app

  • Disappointing

    By JLAuBuchon
    Read some good reviews, decided to buy it, sorry I did. The photo quality just isn’t there. I have ProCamera which does a far better job at HDR and low light pictures as well as offering a lot of extra features. I’ve already deleted this app and would like a refund if I can get one.
  • 32 mp setting

    This is a very good app for just your every day person the doesn’t know manual controls. I use a dslr on manual but if my camera ever dies this will be my back up. Love this app!
  • Disappointing

    By Foomanshoe2000
    This app has no customization sliders. For example, I was under the impression the low light mode would have adjustable exposure sliders, it doesn’t. The HiRes mode doesn’t seem to have any discernible difference from hdr and the IPhone X’s standard camera. I will ask for a refund as I feel a little mislead.

    Not compatible with Snapseed edits when trying to save a photo taken with this app on iPhone 6
  • No Sound Video!

    By willow the pup
    The photo parts of the app are wonderful. I used the hdr video for the first time at my son’s christmas music program. I got so excited when i got home to watch it on tv. But when i played it on my phone it had no sound even with my phone volume in full!!! I transferred the file to my mac and it still had no sound!!! So disapponting and frustrating!!! Can the developers explain this please!
  • Must have app

    One of the best.
  • Very upset with purchase

    By V Flatline
    I thought this took advantage of the iphone x camera it doesn’t even shoot video in 4k and i cant adjust the iso etc..i would like a refund
  • Amaing result!

    By willowcheng
    The result is so amazing!!! All modes seem to remove noise a lot comparing with native camera app. Wish the app can take use of telephoto camera for iPhone 7Plus/8Plus/X to create even better 2x/4x photos.
