HDRexpose3.1

 

unifiedcolor logo

Belmont, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2014

Unified Color Technologies, the experts in high dynamic range imaging (HDR), today announced HDR Expose 3.1, a significant update to its standalone HDR image processing software. HDR Expose 3.1′s newest features, including faster merge and alignment tools, improved de-ghosting algorithms, a new panorama batch processing assist mode and a redesigned merge dialog, are designed to optimize any photographers’ HDR workflow and efficiently produce, high-quality, true color HDR images.

“I have been photographing panoramas commercially for over 20 years,” said Richard Sisk, founder of Richard Sisk Productions. “Whether shooting film or digital, creating accurate reproductions of high contrast scenes has always been a challenge. The new Pano Prep Batch Processing feature of HDR Expose 3.1 not only provides a big productivity boost, but also helps me achieve the best quality results using my RAW image files and Unified Color’s 32-bit Beyond RGB HDR workflow. With HDR Expose, I am able to create universal tone mapped 16-bit TIFF files for each panel of the scene, that I can then stitch together for seamless results, using my favorite panorama software.”

“We have consistently worked to change photographers’ views of HDR image processing and introduce new tools for unlocking creativity,” said John Omvik, vice president of marketing for Unified Color Technologies. “The strike against HDR photography has been that the process of creating the most high quality images was time-consuming and stressed the resources of even the most powerful computer systems. We developed HDR Expose 3.1 to make HDR processing faster, smoother and simpler, and to stretch the boundaries of what’s been thought possible in the past.”

HDR Expose 3.1′s full features include:

New Panorama Batch Processing assist mode – HDR merge individual panels of a panoramic scene and tone map them as a group to provide even, consistent output that can be stitched into a wide panorama (or 360° panorama using 3rd party applications)
Faster Merge & Alignment – Seamlessly merge images up to 35% faster* than in previous versions
Improved de-ghosting algorithms – New manual controls offer more flexibility minimizing noise and removing ghost artifacts from moving subjects
Redesigned Merge dialog – Makes grouping images for the merge process and selecting key frames easier than ever before
DNG source filter option – Now filters DNG files separately from other RAW file formats
Bug fixes and other optimizations

Shooting Challenge: HDR Photography

HDR. It used to be a photographic technique reserved for those fluent in Photoshop. Now, it’s a go-to filter in every point-and-shoot and app. For this week’s Shooting Challenge, we’ll celebrate this democratization of the art form and all shoot in High Dynamic Range.

Nikon’s New Flagship DSLR Is a Supercharged Low-Light Champ | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

“If only the highest-end DSLR will do for you, you’ll be happy to know there’s a new flagship full-frame Nikon camera at the top of DSLR mountain. The newly announced Nikon D4S is a successor to the venerable D4, and comes with a host of improvements, including better autofocus capabilities, enhanced low-light shooting, and speedier data handling.

While the two cameras have the same megapixel count and sensor size — a 16.2-megapixel full-frame (FX format) imager — the sensor tucked inside the D4S is a newly developed chip, and the camera offers a newer image processor in the form of Nikon’s Expeed 4.”
