    High dynamic range images from digital cameras raw data



    Several methods have been proposed to reconstruct a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image from differently exposed photographs that are either scanned films or firmware-processed outputs of digital cameras [Debevec et al, 1997]. We use instead the unprocessed sensor data of digital cameras and show how this simplifies the HDR image reconstruction and more accurately reproduces color information from the original scene.
