HDRv sequence captured in a scene with extreme dynamic range. The video is captured with a High Dynamic Range video imaging system developed in a collaboration between the Computer Graphics and Image Processing group at Linköping University in Sweden and the German camera manufacturer SpheronVR. The HDRv camera captures images with a resolution of 2336x1752 pixels and a dynamic range of over 24 f-stops at up to 30 frames per second. HDR light probe images are often used to create photo realistic computer graphics renderings.
The video displays a gamma mapped sequence that is similar to what a high end low dynamic range video camera would capture (left) side by side with a logarithmically mapped false colored sequence that displays the dynamic range of the scene.
The environment is imaged through the reflection in a mirror sphere captured using a Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 ZF.2 lens. The mirror sphere generates a near 360 degree panoramic HDR image at each captured position.
