ASUS ZenFone5 HDR Photos

High-Dynamic Range imaging: A quick guide

  • Combines multiple exposures into one photo
  • The result is more detailed than what cameras can normally capture

Purpose: To capture the best possible exposure without losing/sacrificing some image details, which happens both in shooting in shadows and highlights.

Keep your hands steady. Capturing an image takes a little longer when HDR mode is on. Otherwise you’ll have an extra hand in your photo like this.

ASUS ZenFone’s HDR setting allows you to take gorgeous photos with impossibly clear details. You just have to learn how to avoid halos that tend to appear in certain conditions when capturing HDR photos with this phone. I think the key is to know what those conditions are.
