How HDR live preview works on #GALAXYS5

One of the roles of Samsung Mobile is to uncover valuable insights from our users, such as taking backlit pictures showing both the shadows and highlights, and make informed decisions in the development of products.

So we’ve introduced an advanced HDR feature on the GALAXY S5 designed to help you take better backlit pictures with a real-time preview.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) is used in photography to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity. An image sensor typically gets a limited amount of light with full well capacity ranging from 0 to 1,024. Using HDR technique, you can extend this limited range. What this means is that you’ll be able to see both the shadow and highlight regions clearly. However, when you enhance the shadows without doing the same for the highlights, you end up with shadow noise. HDR on the GALAXY S5 lets you to enhance both shadows and highlights at the same time so you get clearer results.

But we took it one step further. The advanced HDR on the S5 works not just in post, but also in live preview mode. This means you can see the difference in real time and make a decision whether to capture the frame in this mode. In most cases, the camera captures multiple frames in different exposures and merges them. Each image carries information including brightness levels, tone and dynamic range. 

On the GALAXY S5, the sensor is able to receive, and process, two different types of exposure at the same time. This enables you to preview your photos and videos in HDR, as well as take burst shots.
