    Sky HDR app looks like and interesting new addition. I appears to be more than just a HDR app. The app lets you add an adjustable gradient filter in camera and even save the file as RAW which the current in camera HDR can't do.

    Looks interesting. However, I have two problems
    • I don't like the 9.99 price tag.
    • I fell like I may get in trouble for cheating :confused:

    It's a good option. But I am so used to using GND filters in the field, that I will not change my shooting habits. And, when required, I can also fine tune later on with the gradient tool in LR.

    Yea, Interesting as it looks. I remind myself how often I use the other 9.99$ apps I've purchased. *basically Never.

    I'll at least wait for a review from someone before shelling out the dough.

    The one app I have purchased - for time lapse - I do use from time-to-time. I look at some of them and think "why would it matter to do that in-camera?", especially for $10.

    I do wish Sony would open up development a bit more. Look at what it did for the smartphone, and PDAs before it. I would imagine there would need to be some constraints so that apps could not do something so stupid as to damage the camera, say by overheating a sensor. Yet it seems it could be more open than it is, and could generate a lot of money for Sony if they took the usual 30%.
