Vivo unveils Super HDR auto scene detection setting

Following its backlit photography breakthrough, smartphone brand Vivo is taking mobile photography to new heights with its Super HDR auto scene detection to produce clearer photos, better colors, more details and better tones.

With a wider dynamic range of 14EV, Super HDR can ensure perfect shots in a broader range of lighting scenarios, even in adverse ones

Super HDR follows the same principles as regular HDR but merges more frames to resolve the problems presented by contrasting strong dark and light tones in a photo. It captures more frames and intelligently merges them to cater to more extreme lighting scenarios.

“Vivo continues to push the boundaries and provide the ultimate camera experience for consumers. This goes beyond just adding powerful functions, but to developing innovations that our users can immediately enjoy,” Vivo senior vice president Alex Feng said.

The dynamic range can reach up to 14 EV (Exposure Value) capturing up to 12 frames, significantly more frames than the existing HDR technology. This provides more image options for merging to perfectly light all the parts of the eventual photo.

At up to 12 frames, Super HDR has more lighting options for its smart frame selecting strategies to correctly expose all parts of the photo

Super HDR adapts to different scenes and its dynamic range characteristics, selecting and merging frames to best render the image’s highlights and shadow details which reduce the unnaturally processed look of a regular HDR setting. The new setting also optimize shadows to ensure the complex photo’s highlights with balanced and natural shadows. It also leverages complex AI algorithms to adapt to different scenarios determining the ideal exposure strategy and accordingly select the frames for merging.

AI-powered scene detection means that each part of the photo can be identified and isolated for processing to insure even complex photos are perfected

Ensuring the subject is clear and well-lit, Super HDR employs smart scene detection to balance the lighting of the person and the background to create a natural feel.

Super HDR produces more natural tones by reorganizing and optimizing the highlights and shadow portions of the scene when merging the frames and ensures the photo naturally matches the original scene as seen by human eye

“[Today’s showcase of] Super HDR is an example of our continued commitment to mobile photography, to enable our consumers to shoot professional quality photos at the touch of a button. Using intelligent AI, Super HDR can capture more detail under any conditions, without additional demands on the user,” Feng added.
