High Dynamic Range – known as HDR – describes images with a range of brightness levels that’s broader than conventional SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) content.
Imagine you’re shooting outdoors in brightly-lit conditions, with a high-contrast scene that contains both light and dark areas. In SDR, shadow detail is often lost while brighter regions of the image can appear washed out or white-clipped.
In HDR, bright highlights as well as deep shadow details can be faithfully captured and reproduced – just as if you were looking at the scene with the naked eye.
Shadow detail is often lost and brighter sections appear washed out or white-clipped.
Shadow details are distinct and accurately reproduced, while brighter details look clearer without any white clipping.
