Is it possible to create a smart collection (or metadata filter) that identifies HDR images?

In Lightroom Classic (version 13) is it possible to create a smart collection that identifies iPhone photos containing extended dynamc range. I see a smart collection can identify photos that have been edited in the develop module in HDR but I want to identify photos containing extended brightness even if not yet edited.

 

To further clarify: Apple Photos running on a Mac allows you to create a smart album with condition "Photo is HDR". Is there an equivalent in Lightroom Classic?

 

Thanks

Do you mean iphone photos taken with the HDR option or with Settings > Camera > Smart HDR turned on?

There's no way to identify those using smart collections, since that camera setting is stored in non-standard Apple-specific metadata fields, and LR only shows industry-standard fields.

You could use the Any Filter plugin to search for photos with non-zero, non-empty values for the field Apple:HDRHeadroom, which I think indicates the photos were taken with the iphone camera setting HDR turned on:
