What this article didn't mensions...
HDR 10 uses 10 stops and
Dolby vision uses 12 stops of brightness.
HDR 10 is set as current target by industry which is not true HDR. Irs like when we say hd and thats mean any display having 720p or above pixles. Then comes 1080p, 2k and 4k. Similarly industry is hopping to reach HDR 40 with 40 stops of brightness and shadows.
Where gsm arena is probably wrong.
I read in an article that our current cheapes dslr camera is capible of capturing HDR content but we r not able to see that because we don't have HDR displays.
Lastly a note: when i search YouTube for HDR videos and play them, my Samsung galaxy s 8 screen gets extremely bright and I can't control its brightness no matter how many time i decrease it in slider.
Oh i forgot to mansion that how u lit ur room is directly effects on the quality of HDR display. If u have a white wall 10 feet back to ur HDR display with all the lights off in ur room on a dark night... the resulting light from ur display is still higher then recommended standard by industry (to get as close to HDR as possible)
Thanks! Gsm Arena for this article.Please keep updating with more information like this
Thank a lot GSMARENA TEAM for this article.... It was very informative and it was a pleasure reading this article
Wow! That's one powerful and informative article with great examples to explain the concept of HDR to the masses.. Before reading this article, all I thought about HDR that it was a hype train cuz I knew nothing about it. After reading this, I know nobody can fool me now.. Thanks and keep up the good work.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017No mention that HDR10 has 10bit color depth instead of 8???
Is not that an important factor?They DID mention it
Wider dynamic range
Higher peak brightness
Wider color gamut
So.. In short if you have a HDR display, you have to turn off the HDR feature on your camera for the best true to life image.. Is that correct? Because HDR feature on your camera will convert the image taken to SDR so that it can be viewed in SDR display which means the quality is lost.. Picture taken with the HDR feature OFF retains the black and white levels only viewable with HDR display thus is the better and correct picture.. Am I correct? Also one more question.. In HDR display is there a difference between viewing a white object and a white source of light(i.e sun)?
Thanks much for your clarification on this topic of High Dynamic Range (HDR). It is an interesting primer on understanding HDR miscontrued technologies (saturation, resolution) which portray to offer increased HDR. It now becomes clearer in my mind what to expect in more brilliant images as opposed to lower DR. So then, the maximum DR of the human eye is 24? I wonder what DR my Panasonic GH5 can produce. Any idea on the Huawei Mate 9 (my current model)? The upcoming Mate 10 Pro? Cheers...
Thank you! really nice info to have and yeah hopefully HDR content will be more widely available in the near future.
Look at the frozen cave picture.
It looks unreal to me. The one DV.
Extremely well put and wonderfully picked examples.. the concept of HDR is now sorted for me.. thanks a lot.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017I hate how every advertisement for HDR shows oversaturated colors. Real life doesn't look like that.That is true. Even though there is a big difference between over-saturation and HDR (like the article correctly) pointed out, most of the advertisement show flat, low-contrast image for SDR and pass off a blown-up, punchy, over-saturated image as HDR.
But the article also incorrectly says "It's also why we got about eight phones with HDR in a span of a year but only one with Dolby Vision".
WRONG! As far as I know, the LG V30, iPhone X and the G6 all support both HDR 10 and Dolby Vision.
No mention that HDR10 has 10bit color depth instead of 8???

ok apy, 17 Sep 2017Still I like the normal picture.. when you are watching the beautiful scenery in it's original... moreYou didn't read the article properly, did you?
High dynamic range doesn't mean over-saturation. HDR provides more natural color as it can display more colors than regular displays.
It was very informative and thorough. Keep up the good work.
i didn't article just a bit ... tell me please that are HDR give more natural color or not ? i think yes because they give more colors ... but are they make them color more beautiful which mean less nature color ? HDR is hopefully helps dynamic range which it's lack in my k10
