in Photo and Video (E)

[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Wave today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Flare 1.0 for iOS devices. Shoot video. In HDR. In real time. The developer behind the viral video clip "HDR Video Demonstration Using Two Canon 5D mark II's" on Vimeo has released an iPhone app which enables video in HDR. While developing for the iPhone is much different than what can be accomplished with professional-grade cameras and a beam splitter, the results are remarkable for a mobile device.

"When Mike and I released that first HDR clip, I was quoted as saying that I believe HDR video will soon be commonplace," said Alaric Cole, the developer of the app. "It took an incredible amount of work, but I think I've made a huge step in bringing the look to many more people. And considering the capabilities of the next iPhone, I'm confident more advanced techniques will be possible very soon."

Feature Highlights:
* Effects live on screen - no delay
* Focus independently of exposure - just tap then drag
* Pinch to zoom
* Easily lock white balance, exposure, and focus by tapping
* Share full quality videos to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Flickr, and more

In addition to HDR, Flare offers a few features for amateur and professional videographers, such as highly refined independent focus, exposure, and white balance controls and "instant on" capabilities. There are a handful of HDR effects in the initial version, with more effects promised in the near future.
