Lord Petyr Techwiz, 25 Sep 2017Ok. Then provide empirical evidence to back your claim. Not just your baseless, personal opinion. I should ask you to try HDR yourself and then comment instead of believing in some expert opinion
ok apy, 25 Sep 2017No its not true... Ok. Then provide empirical evidence to back your claim. Not just your baseless, personal opinion.
A long, but needed explanation. I already knew that it made you see 'more' color, but the rest was blurred.
Hoping it's actually going to be useful and standardized, unlike USB-C.
Thanks for the info & telling difference between HDR on displays & HDR button on the mobile camera app.
Also HDR-10 & Dolby Vision comparison.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017Look at the frozen cave picture.
It looks unreal to me. The one DV.
Did you look at it using an HDR enabled screen?
If not its normal its look unnatural..
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017I hate how every advertisement for HDR shows oversaturated colors. Real life doesn't look like that.The colors dont look boosted on my HDR 4k tv.
but its do look boosted on my not HDR ready LG G5 so i guess its maybe because of your screen you get this issue.

According to the specs from this site, LG G6, V30 and iPhone X have Dolby Vision - that's three, not one.
One of the best briefly informative articles I have ever came across in GSMArena.
Maybe you can duplicate this kind of articles in another section other than the news.
Keep this kind of great work ;)

Overall it is a very good article. However as a photographer I tend to believe that display wise HDR capability is not really that important. A display which can show deep blacks ~ 0.005 ANSI checkerboard black level, and to this black level can display around 150 nit as white - that display basically can show anything in an enjoyable way given that the mastering of the original was done by professionals. Capturing the whole dynamic range therefore is way way the most important thing. Then during mastering the digital artist can decide where to tone map the different areas of the original RAW footage.
The imagined display was available years ago commercially - those were the plasma TVs and they in fact had around 16 - 17 stops (from 0,005 nit to 82 there is 16 stops).
In practice that is confortable to the eye.
Now imagine that the original source has 30 stops of dynamic range. Now do we need a display which can show this native. I think not. Who wants to see an explosion or a completely white lit wall with 1000+ nit?
Movie making and photography was always a sought after eye candy, a visual art because it was not a copy of nature but a vision of the director and the photographer. If we got a 30 stops camera and got a 30 stops display then we according this HDR mania would not need to edit the source at all - since everything from pitch black to nuke explosion would be on film. Too bad that would not look like a film, but as a documentary.
Good and tastefull mastering, editing would be way more useful.
Yes I agree that during recording we need an HDR camera, but then we need mastering to show it in our bedrooms on a normal 16 stop display.
I know a lot of movies when they cut using a completely white pictue. If this comes after a night scene, will my eye hurt by the unexpected 1000 nit scene? Is this needed? I think not.
Unfortunately and sadly nowadays HDR is completely tasteless, over saturated, Alice in wonderland pictures. This is not needed. This is just marketing, a twisted distorted eye-candy.
If you think about it - HDR is with us for a very long time now. I used to take exposition bracketing on color positive film and then scanned and edited the pictures together to have real HDR. This way we could achive 15 or more stops from 4-5 expositions. And then the result went into press and got printed onto paper which has maximum 6-8 stops of dynamic range (depending on paper used) - still the images looked just very nice and had all the tones we wanted.
We could watch HDR content on current TV sets.. but thats not business to the producers.
