Apple Patents Single Exposure HDR TechPeople can really do some amazing things with High Dynamic Range photography, but for the layman, HDR is a bit of a hassle. Either you're required to take several shots at different exposure settings or take a single shot and then deal with less-than-ideal post processing that imitates the HDR look.
Apple has patented a new tech that will allow photographers to get HDR photos without having to deal with either of those limitations. The way it works is a bit hard to explain, but the camera will capture multiple images during a single exposure, allowing for HDR composites to be created without having to set up multiple shots. This is nice for those that don't have the desire to spend time setting things up, and would make getting HDR action shots simple.
