High Dynamic Range as practised and taught at www.cambridgeincolour.com is a marvellous thing, allowing digital photography to actually reproduce what we see, but in so many instances the results are…well horrible.
“Love it or hate it, high dynamic range photography (and video if you’ve been keeping an eye on Soviet Montage Productions) is the future. HDR photography isn’t new by any means but the technologies that are evolving are quite exciting.
Photoshop CS5 was shipped with it’s latest HDR innovation and Canon have raised the game with their recent patent application (USPTO Appl. No. 12/630,594). Without going to to too many details, it seems that Canon have found a way to alter exposure values at pixel level, thus creating a single image, from a single frame, with a wider dynamic range than we’ve seen from any DSLR.”
