Kevin Chen shows HDR Imaging in Microsoft Excel


This is a real gem!
Not only is Kevin Chen's talk at !!Con2017 completely hilarious, it's also packed with an extremely clear explanation of some core concepts of HDR imaging. Watch this and you will learn about recovering the camera curve, why that is even necessary, and how to assemble pixel values at real-world brightness levels from multiple exposures. All together it's a pretty comprehensive look under the hood of an HDR software. Which, in this case, is just a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet!

Grab a beer and enjoy this 11-minute presentation:


Hats off to Kevin and his wonderful ways of demystifying the process. He actually makes this monster .xlxs spreadsheet available on his website (along with the slides).
