What’s the best way to create an HDR video without having to process each individual frame? By using 2 cameras at the same time, each with different exposures. Check out the video of this innovative process, after the jump.
So how does it work exactly?
Soviet Montage – “Video is captured on two Canon 5D mark II DSLRs, each capturing the exact same subject via a beam splitter. The cameras are configured so that they record different exposure values, e.g., one camera is overexposed, the other underexposed. After the footage has been recorded, we use a variety of HDR processing tools to combine the video from the two cameras, yielding the clips you see above.”
We hope this will be a common feature in a few years time. The iPhone 4 already has the ability to take HDR photos by combining multiple exposures into a single HDR image, so hopefully the camera manufacturers will follow suit.
