HDR Camera mode - Sorta Works.
I've complained in another thread that the HDR mode in the One X camera is sort of a let down compared to HDR Camera+ (app store), but since that app is not yet compatible with the One X, (reboots the phone) I ran some test shots to show the difference.
The HDR mode does not pull out the deep shadow detail as well as HDR Camera+. But it can tone down the overly bright areas to an acceptable level.
Below are some shots of a Baseball Stadium (Safeco). The sun was coming over the south wall, and making the high seats on the far side all washed out.
Turning on the HDR mode, you can see below that it was much better, but still missing that great saturation of a typical HDR shot.
At least you can see the seats on the far side in the sun.
This next shot was done on my old Nexus One using HDR Camera+. Its not nearly as good of a camera as the ONE X, but the app does a much better job of stitching 3 (not 2) images together to bring out the colors.
P.S. None of these images are full resolution, either here or on photobucket where they are stored. I tried to resize them to be roughly equal.
