Have you always wanted to shoot HDR video using your iPhone? Well now you can with this new iPhone app called Flare, from the videographer that brought to the world its first HDR video.
For those who are out of the loop with the current photo and video terminologies, HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. It is a technique that involves combining multiple photographs of the same scene that varies in exposure settings. This allows greater dynamic range of luminance that produces crisp looking images that puts great emphasis on lights and shadows.
Since firmware update iOS 4.1, the iPhone had the capability to shoot HDR photos but with no real way of implementing it into a video. Now with Flare, you will be able to shoot HDR videos in real time. Flare's features are as follows:
- Tone-mapping effects live as you film
- Focus independently of exposure* - just tap then drag
- Pinch to ZOOM
- Easily lock white balance, exposure, and focus with a tap
- Share full quality videos to facebook, twitter, youtube, tumblr, flickr, and more

The strength of the HDR effect can be easily adjusted using a slider. Good news for those who are interested because Flare is currently on sale at 99 cents (normal price $2), so be sure to grab it now since it is a limited time offer only.
