    I have been using cortex camera tog get the highest quality shots on my 6 plus and when I came across the Hydra app, I was pleasantly surprised... I've been wanting an all in one app for quite a while now for the iPhone and so far, the Hydra app is the best I've seen. I love the 32mp resolution files, the HDR is the best I've used, and I can't wait to push it to its limits. However in there is still a little bit of noise in the 32mp images compared to cortex, which almost has none, but I'm sure in the version updates to come will make this app better! I'll be telling all of my friends about this app! Hail Hydra! (LOL, a little bit of captain America for you).

    Honestly the 32mp images are so clear (at least on my iPhone6 plus) that this will be my new landscape app!!! It is similar to cortex camera, you don't want to use it for moving subjects.

    The zoom feature is great as well. All of the images produced by Hydra are clear and sharp! Multiple images are stacked with each function to provide noise free images.

    Oh, very nice!!! I was reading some of the reviews? Eeeek! Does it still have the "wait XX seconds" before it will take the picture in the version you have?

    Yeah it does. It's not a "quick" camera app, it's specialized for making clear clean photos of static subjects. The reason for the long delay of the photo is because the app is stacking up to 70 photos per shot. So, you can't move much or shoot moving subjects. It's a "take your time" app. Probably more suited for more serious photographers (like myself) since it does require patience to create unique photos. I like shooting old buildings and landscapes with apps like this. Cortex camera is similar if you seen it.

    I'm the kind of person that likes to work their scene. I tried Hydra, but ended up getting a refund.

    Yeah, definitely one of those apps you use a tripod with.
