Re: HDR camera

Interesting find, Saby. I don't understand the subject well enough to know if they have invented a new "HDR" sensor (it doesn't seem to list one) or a camera that simply makes the current process/technique easier?

I'm sure that sensors in the future will have increased dynamic range, but don't understand the science so don't know if there is a barrier to prevent true HDR sensors. Film (both print and slides) had/have limits to their dynamic range; printers, computer monitors, photographic papers all have dynamic range limits (if I understand what I've read correctly) that are below what the current HDR software can create.

There are commercial photography purposes which could find near-HDR cameras useful -- those who shoot interiors of buildings for real-estate, architectural purposes discuss some interest in HDR methods on DPreview.com. If there is a market for it, I'm sure there will be companies trying to fill the need.

I'm still just trying to catch up with the current software to simulate near-HDR.

Saby, it will be interesting to see if this or future similar models are adopted for professional work. There are some threads on DPreview with a HDR devotee pushing for the elimination of artificial lighting and use of the HDR multi-exposure techniques for commercial work -- some of the responses from self-reported pros seem to show some beginnings of HDR techniques use, but as "one more tool in the tool chest" instead of a reason to leave the strobes / hot lights at home. It would be interesting to see a future where photographers need only carry a camera instead of all the additional lighting equipment.

As far as the price, that $50,000 would buy TWO good Hondas.
