Microsoft Lumia users also know this feature as “Rich Capture.” The feature is not new to Windows phones, so what is the buzz all about? The Windows 10 camera app has made notable changes to the feature. The improved Force HDR will now be introduced on Microsoft’s first Windows 10 phones, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950.
Earlier, Windows phones used to decide whether to use the feature or not, which means Rich Capture would not turn on even when Lumia users wanted to capture HDR images. This is about to change. With Force HDR on Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950, Windows 10 mobile users will be able to decide whether to let their phone decide when to use the feature.
With the introduction of the change, Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 users will now be able to capture HDR pictures even when the sun is bright. As reported by Phone Arena, Juha Alakarhu, Microsoft Imaging Chief, told AAWP about Force HDR coming to Windows 10 camera app. Shedding more light on “Rich Capture,” Phone Arena in its report also mentioned, “The Windows 10 camera app allows those with the Nokia Lumia 930 and below to turn on or off HDR. On the two newer Lumia models, the options are Off and Auto. That apparently will be expanded to On/Off/Auto when the update to the app is made.”
The improved Rich Capture will come to Microsoft’s latest flagship phones when the Windows 10 camera app gets its next update. The company has not confirmed the dates of the update release yet, but I guess we will not have to wait longer.
