Combo Apps/Fusion – HDR Camera


What is Fusion ? Fusion creates HDR (high dynamic range) photos by capturing different exposures and then combining them into one perfectly exposed photo. The Fusion camera analyses the scene to compute exposures and captures three bracketed photos instantaneously. The photos are then ‘fused’ together in the Fusion editor, taking the best exposed areas of each one, to create a beautiful final image.

I’ve had the privilege to beta test this app. I can tell you from experience this is by far one of the best HDR camera apps you will ever use. It’s simple but powerful. You have the controls and tools needed to make a really nice HDR on the spot. No more taking your photos and edit them later. It’s shoot, edit and save.

Fusion Press Images

This is pretty much what the app looks like. You start with the camera and shoot you photo. After you shoot your photo, then it’s time for post processing. If you go through your recent edits, Fusion will keep track of your HDR exposure shots.

What’s nice is if you shoot something you don’t like, the bad shots don’t get saved. They are auto deleted, so you don’t have to worry about these shots taking up space on your iPhone or remember to clean out your camera roll.

The editing tools are non-destructive and you can go back to your recent list and re-edit your HDR photos.

Sky Blown Up

What else I really love about this app are, that it’s pretty close to being noise and artifacts free photos. Your photos look really clean, no loss in details and nothing is blown out. You will get some really clean and smooth blue skies.


What’s nice is I can do macro still life shots with Fusion. Something I couldn’t do before with a HDR app. I can actually hand hold my iPhone and take different angle shots with Fusion. Where a tripod will burden and hinder the way you want to shoot your still life.


When you use Fusion on people, no more wear contrasts where everyone looks 100 years old. The skin is smooth and no discolorations or weird blotchy patches. If people are moving you will get the ghosting, but we all know it’s hard making people stay still.


The movement doesn’t bother me so much because kids are always active. It’s nearly imposible to keep them still, so I just grab the moments when they present themselves. I like how it shows the ghosting effect with out the weird contrast and blotchy patches. The HDR still looks clean.


Overall Fusion sets the bar on all other HDR apps. To me this is the real game changer and I can see other HDR apps follow in their foot steps. By far it’s one of the few HDR apps I can use without a tripod, I can stand still and hold up my iPhone and shoot away. Fusion is universal too the iPad, iOS 8 only and sells for $1.99 in the App Store. I highly recommend you run out and get this app. You can follow Fusion on Instagram @eastcoastpixels and hash tag your photos #FusionHDR.

  14. danmblog says:

    How does it compare with other apps, I recently got Hydra, and it is just ok. Not the best. Most likely I’ll get this one too.

    • ashcroft54 says:

      I actually like it over Hydra because the post processing you can do with your photos.

      • danmblog says:

        You were not kidding! This app is the best…I really like all the controls, and even the exif info is great to see. They raised the bar in this app, well worth my 1.99.
