Another thing that makes GCam so much better is its HDR+ processing. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. It uses multiple photos taken at different exposures to create a single awesome photo with highlights, shadows and all the detail in between.
The HDR+ in GCam does HDR even better than the regular app. It chooses the perfect raw photos and blends them together perfectly for HDR shots that look hyper-realistic. The photos will have a wider range of colors and brightness so everything in the scene is captured just how you saw it.
