The iOS 4.1 brought the HDR feature to the iPhone 4 camera.

Apple released HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography in iOS 4.1. iPhone 4 owners can now benefit from this new feature to take brighter photos in darker settings. Apple gained access to HDR technology according to MacRumors through an acquisition of a small company in the UK. But what is more important is how much value HDR brings to iPhone 4 owners.

Arstechnica tested the iPhone 4 HDR feature in detail and published an interesting review that looks at what can HDR achieve on the iPhone 4 and what not.

Quote from the HDR review: "The iPhone 4 will take the three separate exposures very quickly, especially when bright daylight allows for very short shutter times, but a few attempts to photograph a close-up of a flower that was blowing in the breeze resulted in a blurry mess. And if it's not readily apparent, HDR won't work for action shots. As impressive as HDR results can be, that on/off switch is there for good reason."
