Sony Launches New Sky HDR PlayMemories App

Sony_Sky-HDR-3.pngSony has just released a new PlayMemories app for use with compatible NEX, Alpha, and Cyber-shot cameras.

Sky HDR helps you capture beautiful sunsets and landscapes, in conditions that are usually very difficult to shoot in. By using multi-exposure and HDR technologies, the Sky HDR app will capture two images, one with exposure optimized for the foreground and a second with the exposure set for maximum sky detail. The app will then combine the two together, giving you a wonderful scene that offers increased dynamic range.

Sony_Sky-HDR-1.pngBy using helpful grid lines on the screen, you can adjust the boundary between the land and sky, the defocus area, and the app even allows you to adjust exposure settings (ISO, aperture, etc.).

Sony_Sky-HDR-2.pngThe Sony PlayMemories Sky HDR app (Ver. 1.00) is available for purchase now, for just $9.99. To learn more about the app, as well as see samples taken using it, click here to visit Sony's PlayMemories website.
