The Xbox One S makes a great 4K set top box. It’s a rare box capable of handling HDR, a part of the Ultra High Definition format that allows for better details in scenes of extreme brightness or darkness. But the HDR on the Xbox One S is currently experiencing some significant bugs that firmly drop the console from…
Television, despite what the manufacturers are saying, is in a pretty boring place at the moment. The jump to color from black and white, to high definition from standard—even the unmitigated failure that was 3D—those were moments in TV history. What we’ve currently got is gentle, natural leaps in picture quality:…
We think of CES as the time for all the major TV announcements, but more and more companies are holding back their big stuff until later in the year. See Vizio waiting until March to announce a new lineup of TVs priced to sit between their budget and high-end reference sets. But the real kicker of their 2016 P-series?…
You could say that, historically, televisions are the star of CES. After all, it was at CES in 1998 that the world saw the first ever high-definition TVs. Plasma TVs debuted at CES in 2001, and OLEDs appeared in 2008. This year, however, everything was pretty damn boring. That’s not a bad thing.
My most essential piece of software as a photographer is Adobe Lightroom. It’s one of those things you salivate for when you hear an update is coming. Such an update is upon us with Lightroom CC, but the new features still leave me thirsty.
High Dynamic Range photography represents the incredible feats that can be accomplished with digital imaging. But! HDR abuse is also responsible for some of the most horrendous displays of photographic over-indulgence. This must stop.
What happens when you squish together the best of underexposed and overexposed photography? You get HDR—high dynamic range images. Here are 37 examples of what HDR can do.

Colin Rich has captured LA at night like you have never seen it before. The video, which you must see in HD and full screen, is so exquisitely perfect it gives me sensory overload.
AMP is a single lens video camera that can capture real time HDR. HDR video, as you know, exposes the living breathing smelling unreality hidden in life. Or something like that. Just watch how AMP's HDR works.
There's a lot to like about the new Pentax Q digital camera. It has a slick retro look, five interchangeable lenses and many features of a dSLR packed into a body that's the size of a point and shoot.
HDR photos can make mundane still pictures look bold and exciting. HDR videos can transform the world around you into a psychedelic, acid-laced trip. Flare for iPhone record videos in HDR. Bring on the acid.
We've seen HDR make life look hyperreal before but this short film takes it to another level. The chapel is real, built in 1796 in Poland, but it looks like something out of Gears of War. Just watch.
This was a phenomenal year of Shooting Challenges. Your submissions were as beautiful as they were plentiful. Check out some of the best user-submitted images of 2010.
It's not pretty like this post-production HDR video from last week, but isn't it exciting to see what RED's Epic is capable of when trained at an average Las Vegas nightlife scene?
