Up until now, if you wanted to create an HDR video, you'd be looking at hours spent compositing footage together. This incredible AMP video camera saves you all that trouble — it shoots HDR videos in real-time.
When done right, HDR photos and videos can look, dare we say, "magical." Instead of using two cameras to capture an underexposed and an overexposed recording that's later composited together, the AMP camera uses a single lens with two beam-splitters to do the same job. With three different sensors that provide the camera with a range of 17 aperture stops; tweaking a video's range of colors and "effects" shouldn't be too tricky.
Although PetaPixel calls the footage "pretty ugly," we actually think that real-time HDR video could open up a completely new can of worms for visualizing concept art for cinema and video games. We also kind of like how shadows are filled in and everything has this zany, cartoony-like feel to it, which adds to the style.
Check out how the camera works and some impressive sample footage in the video below. Like? Hate it? We're all ears.
