What’s HDR?

HDR – High Dynamic Range – is a digital photography technique aimed at making an image appear much closer to what the human eye sees as opposed to what the camera’s sensor allows. Because HDR technology uses multiple levels of light intensity, the resulting images have a wider range of tonal values than a non-HDR image.

How does HDR usually work?

Bracketing

The traditional HDR method is based on bracketing and compiles three exposures of the same image : underexposed, well exposed and overexposed.

Ghosting artefact

The flip side of this method is what we call “ghosting” effects. Since bracketing consists of combining consecutive shots, any moving subjects in your scene will be moving across each image, making your subjects look like ghosts in your final results. Therefore, this method requires to keep the camera stable and shoot still subjects.

What about HDRinstant technology?

A technology inspired by astrophotography

HDRinstant is based on a cutting-edge technology, inspired from astrophotography techniques. It creates long exposures by stacking multiple images from a video sequence. The use of video allows to manage the luminous dynamics of a scene, i.e. the difference between the brightest and the darkest.

The user selects a frame (a “decisive moment”) from a video. HDRinstant combines this frame with several neighboring frames and then uses a “morphing” technique to reconstruct the final image. This cutting-edge technology provides greater detail in dark areas and increases the signal-to-noise ratio.

A technology that overcomes the constraints of bracketing

The software overcomes the constraints associated with the traditional method of creating HDR images: activation of the “bracketing”, use of a tripod and shooting of static subjects and scenes.

For the user, it becomes possible to master the moving subjects of a scene: either by eliminating ghostly trails with the antighosting or by applying effects such as long exposure for an aesthetic blur.
