HDR technique is now popular when we talk about photography (iPhone 4 just introduced this new feature), but talking about moviemaking it’s pretty cutting edge. Take a look at this video by Sovietmontage.

La tecnica HDR è ormai popolare quando si parla di fotografia (4 iPhone ha appena introdotto questa nuova funzione), ma parlando di filmati è piuttosto all’avanguardia. Date un’occhiata a questo video da Sovietmontage.

This is how they explain the realization of the video:

“This video highlights several clips we’ve made using our new High Dynamic Range (HDR) process. 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.

HDR Video provides filmmakers with many exciting new opportunities. Not only can HDR video create interesting effects, it can also allow for even exposure where artificial lighting is unavailable or impractical. For example, when a subject is backlit, one camera could be set to properly expose the subject, the other the sky, resulting in video with perfect exposure throughout.”
