HDR for everyone: CyanogenMod 10.1 adds high dynamic range feature in the stock camera app
The latest CyanogenMod 10.1 has added one more trick up its sleeve, namely an HDR mode in the stock camera app interface. This would allow almost any rooted Android phone modded with Cyanogen to shoot high dynamic range pictures.

The principle here is to combine three photos shot with a full range of exposures on the fly, thus eliminating over- or underexposed photos in tricky lighting situations.

The results are, of course, contingent on the HDR software algorithms and the quality of the camera module and image processor, but having the HDR option is one more arrow in the CM 10.1 quiver that might lure you towards modding your Android handset to its full potential.
