We have covered Fhotolens from the earliest beta versions and for those not familiar with the Windows Phone photography app, it provides your camera a virtual 10-24mm lens and HDR capture capabilities.

The app has been updated several times since its public release and today Fhotolens gets bumped to version 1.5 that mainly deals with the HDR (High Dynamic Range) feature.

The version 1.5 update provides a two and three exposure option in capturing HDR images.  You can also adjust the HDR bracketing +/- two stops.  This will give you a little more control in capturing the series of images used to create the blended HDR image.  The developer is working on a five exposure option but that may push the memory available on some devices.

Along with the HDR controls, the update adds an exposure time option to allow for long exposure times.  From the menu display, the Exposure Tile will let you extend the exposure up to four seconds.

Lastly, the update removes the Scenic setting option from the app.  The Scenic option locked your focal point to infinity and lacked the flexibility needed.

There is a free trial version for Fhotolens with the full version running $1.49.  It is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices and you can find your copy of Fhotolens here in the Windows Phone Store.
