Here are some sample images i have taken with the app, i will update this blogpost a lot in the next days, so make shure to check it out frequently.

Sample Images shot with the Sony A7II + Sigma 24mm 1.4 @ F8 using the Sony Sky HDR APP, images are processed in lightroom with the same settings. You can see there is a very good amount of detail in the sky and the images are well balanced:

 

 

The first image here is shot again with the Sony A7II + Sigma 24mm 1.4 @ F8 using the Sony Sky HDR APP, image is processed in lightroom with the same settings. Again good details in the sky and well balanced image

 

The second image was shot again with the Sony A7II + Sigma 24mm 1.4 only with 1 exposure, image is processed in lightroom with the same settings. Now you can see less details in the sky and overall its not so good balanced, especially the bottom is darker and the middle has too much highlights.

 

The third image here is shot again with the Sony A7II + Sigma 24mm 1.4 @ F8 using the Sony Sky HDR APP + Blue Sky Preset in the app, image is processed in lightroom with the same settings. You can see the sky looks too saturated and the rest is not very good balanced, too much highlights in the middle, the bottom is quite nice though.

Conclusion:

The sony Sky HDR App is a very useful app that expands the possibilities of the sony cameras and gives you more detail in the sky without using a graduated nd filter or polarizer filters and especially when you have lenses where you cant screw filters on. Of course you will still have to edit your raw files in lightroom, but this app gives you more information to play with.
