With Windows 10 updated came the issue of 'non-control' over Rich Capture in Windows 10 Camera app, there were only two options 'Off' and 'Auto'. Now in a new information given by AAWP 'Force HDR' is coming soon to Windows 10, the website says.
After more than a few compaints around these parts of how Rich Capture works on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, Microsoft's (ex-Nokia) imaging chief, Juha Alakarhu, has been in touch to let us know that 'Force HDR is coming' soon to Windows 10 Mobile's official Camera application, though he couldn't promise 'any dates yet'.
In High dynamic range or simply HDR multiple images taken with a range of exposure levels and then combined to create a higher-quality rich photo. The main issue with the Rich Capture on Windows 10 has been its ability to auto turn off the feature:
The main complaint has been that the 'automatic' Rich Capture on the new flagships has its triggering theshold set so high that almost no shots in sunlight actually get taken with multiple images, so there's no chance to, for example, do an 'Artistic HDR' photo of that sunrise or sunset.
Rich Capture setting on/off works fine on Lumia 930 and below on Windows 10 camera, the issue came with the newer device Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. With the new feature being added into the Windows 10 Camera, the owners of Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL should be pretty happy. Windows 10 Camera app has replaced the Lumia Camera app which was available for Lumia phones and is now the default app for all Windows 10 mobile devices.
