Rich HDR editing in Windows 10 Mobile broken by recent updates

Microsoft has pushed update after update to Windows 10 Mobile native apps in recent times. While the updates usually bring some cool features to the apps but sometimes they break features too. That has happened with recent Photos updates. While we have reported Photos updates adding many major and minor features, the latest update has broken Rich Capture or Rich HDR editing in Photos App.

If you now go to Photos App after capturing the image with Rich HDR on and tap on  “choose the best lighting” or exposure depending upon when the image was capture, it will throw an error “something went wrong, please try again”. This error is on at least three Rich Capture supported devices we have including Lumia 550, 640 XL and 950.

Do let us know in comments if you are facing similar issue with Rich HDR editing.

    It won’t work without flash with my phone either (Lumia 950 Dual sim).

    I can’t make any living image shoot any more. (Lumia 830)

    • Now it only works if the camera detects a moving object in the picture

    Same issue here (Lumia 830 / WM10 10586.164 / Photo app 16.325.12392.0).

    The behaviour really depends on flash:

    1) Rich capture ON, flash OFF –> Something went wrong
    2) Rich capture ON, flash ON –> It works

      Si vero!
      Auto + Auto = ok lumia 950xl

        In ogni caso sono tornato a Windows Phone 8.1 (per la seconda volta, dopo mesi spesi da Insider)… Troppi problemi con Windows 10 Mobile vs Lumia 830

    It works fine with my Lumia 930. WM10 10586.164, Photo app 16.325.12392.0.
