    I heard that the X was supposed to be capable of taking HDR photos with the Froyo update. I looked in the market for apps, and only found Camera 360... I really wasn't too impressed with it. Does anyone have another camera app for taking HDR photos?

    Where did you hear this?

    As far as I know, there are no HDR camera apps for android. Camera 360 doesn't do HDR, it only simulates the HDR look.

    Has anyone else heard about HDR being possible on the X with 2.2? I remember reading this a while back, but I can't find the article now.

    I think it's a really neat effect. It's not something that you would use all the time, but it would be cool to use it occasionally.

    I'll bite. What is HDR?

    Hmm, I completely disagree! If done correctly, it can look very good. Here's a waterfall pic I did with my DSLR using HDR.

    There are a lot of settings in HDR which can drastically change the appearance of the end result.

    It's a process that takes the same photo with several different exposures then creates a single image from the different photos. Done right it can look really cool.

    HDR = High Dynamic Range

    I tried to make one, thinking it wouldn't be that hard after Apple announced it as a new feature in iOS. I got the camera to take 3 pictures in a row but when I realized I'd need to import some java image manipulating libraries I gave up.
