AMP Camera Captures HDR Video in Real Time with One Lens and Three Sensors

Late last year we showed you an interesting demonstration of HDR video filmed using two Canon 5D Mark IIs. The cameras captured the exact same scene at different exposure values using a beam-splitter. Now, a new camera called AMP has been developed that captures real-time HDR video using a single lens. The trick is that there are two beam-splitters in the camera that take the light and direct it onto three different sensors, giving the system a dynamic range of 17 stops. Check out some sample clips in the video above — they might be pretty ugly, but the technology here is pretty interesting.

Beautiful HDR Time-lapse of Las Vegas

Here’s a beautiful tone mapped HDR time-lapse video of Las Vegas shot by Philip Bloom using a few Canon DSLRs and a Panasonic GH2. He spent 5 days shooting, and many more processing the bracketed photographs using Photomatix Pro. It’s pretty amazing seeing Las Vegas go from day to night and then back again — all in HDR. To find out how Bloom did this, check out the behind-the-scenes writeup and video over on his blog.

Black and White HDR Time Lapse Shot with a Sony A700

Andrew Rees shot this beautiful black and white time lapse in Cardiff, Wales using a Sony A700 DSLR. He shot 700 pairs of photos (a total of 1400 shots) with 2.5 seconds in between pairs, and combined the resulting HDR photographs into a 12fps time lapse video.

We love how the HDR makes the scene look like a moving painting.

HDR Video Demonstration Made with Two Canon 5D Mark IIs

You’ve most likely seen HDR photographs before, but how about HDR video? The above is a demonstration of HDR video by Soviet Montage, created using two Canon 5D Mark II DSLR cameras. Both cameras recorded identical scenes using a beam splitter, and captured the footage at different exposure values (over and under exposed).

We’ve posted HDR videos before, but they were created using stop-motion, so the process was more traditional. This is also the first time we’ve seen an HDR video of a person.

HDR Time-Lapse Video by Aaron Patterson

Constant Motion is a breathtaking time-lapse video by Redding, California-based freelance photographer Aaron Patterson that takes HDR to a whole new level. On his blog, Patterson writes,

This Video took roughly 600 hours of editing not to mention the countless hours of shooting. It is made of around 10k photos and took around 300 gigs of info. All of this was shot in 3.5 months which is about 6 hours of editing a day.

All that work definitely shows in the final product. Absolutely stunning.
