We do this by grabbing the focus pixel disparity map and running the image through our custom blur. When you open Halide on iPhone XR, simply tap ‘Depth’ to enable depth capture. Any photo you take will have a depth map, and if there’s sufficient data to determine a foreground and background, the image will get beautifully rendered bokeh, just like iPhone XS shots.
You’ll notice that enabling the Depth Capture mode does not allow you to preview Portrait blur effect or even automatically detect people. Unfortunately, the iPhone XR does not stream depth data in realtime, so we can’t do a portrait preview. You’ll have to review your portrait effects after having taken the photo, much like the Google Pixel.
The app has quickly become a powerhouse for anyone looking for a professional-grade alternative to Apple’s Stock Photos app. An update earlier this month brought a Smart RAW feature for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. It allows photographers to expose and capture the best possible RAW shots.
Halide Camera is designed for the iPhone and can be downloaded on the App Store for $5.99.
