Description

Halide is an award-winning camera app listed in Macworld's "Must Have Apps," The Verge's "Apps We Love," and picked by The Sweet Setup as "Best Third-Party Camera App for iPhone." Daring Fireball says, “This sort of maniacal attention to the smallest of details deserves to be celebrated.”

Halide is a groundbreaking app for deliberate and thoughtful photography. With high-end tools, and a beautiful UI designed from scratch for the latest iPhones, Halide is your go-to camera when you want to really take a photo rather than a quick snapshot.

Use gestures in Halide to change exposure and manual focus with a swipe. Halide’s professional tools include focus peaking, histograms, adaptive level grid, manual depth capture, and RAW support on supported phones.* Customize controls to adapt the app to your needs.

Features:


- Beautiful, intuitive gesture-based interface
- An intuitive and fast lens switcher designed especially for iPhone 11 Pro
- On iPhone X and later, a custom-designed UI that is completely usable with one hand
- Manual Depth Capture: Take portraits of pets and objects on iPhone XR
- Focus peaking and powerful manual focus*
- Full manual controls including shutter speed, ISO and white balance
- Live histograms for perfect exposure*
- Captures RAW, TIFF, HEIC or JPG for the best quality shots*
- Grid overlay with built-in level
- Quick-review of your last few shots
- Intelligent automatic and manual mode

*Compatibility:

The Ultra Wide camera on iPhone 11 and 11 Pro does not support RAW or manual focus.
Histograms require iPhone 6 or later. (6, 6S, 7, 8, X, XS, XR, SE, 11, 11 Pro)
RAW requires iPhone 6S or later. (6S, 7, 8, X, XS, XR, SE, 11, 11 Pro)

What’s New

Version 1.15.0

We're excited to bring you our Deep Fusion and Smartest Processing update! Deep Fusion will automatically become available when it launches with a future version of iOS. Smartest Processing is available today on iOS 13.1.

Our option to enable Smartest Processing will allow you to shoot with the highest possible quality image processing. This means extra dynamic range and quality when shooting with Smart HDR on iPhone XS or newer.

Note that our new Smartest Processing option requires an iPhone XS or newer, and Deep Fusion requires iPhone 11 or 11 Pro.

Unfortunately, iOS does not allow shooting with both RAW and this extensive image processing. Remember, if you want to shoot in HEIC or JPG, simply off RAW in the QuickBar by tapping the RAW icon.

If you'd like to shoot faster, or this processing just isn't your thing, you can always disable it in "Advanced Settings." This won't affect Halide's own Smart RAW.

What else is new? We have something for everyone: We've fixed issues with depth capture that appeared alongside iOS 13. With this update, we cut down its memory usage to avoid crashes, and tracked down when iOS fails to capture a depth photo altogether. That means faster Depth shots for all iPhones with Depth support and a more stable app. Hooray!

Thank you for supporting us. If you dig this update, consider leaving a review. If you have any issues or feedback, you can reach out to us at support@halide.cam, or ping us on Twitter at @halidecamera and we'll see what we can do. Don't forget to tag your photos #ShotWithHalide to be featured.

Editors' Notes

Your iPhone has an excellent camera and the picture wizards at Lux Optics want to help photographers make the most of it. Hey presto: Halide Camera! It’s designed around two principles: the kind of granular settings you’d expect from a professional DSLR; and a slick, one-handed interface that complements today’s devices.

Halide

Easily the best camera and it supports RAW

I think I've tried every cashers that supports RAW over the past two years. Before I four LL found Halide I had one default camera app and a folder with half a dozen that I would use because each had its own strengths for certain situations. Now I've deleted then all. Halide is fast, fast to start, fast to shoot. It's elegant, simple, powerful but gives you full control. It's designed for the photographer, not by a developer who just wants to add everything with little thought of how people are going to take pictures.
