Typical video footage captured using an off-the-shelf camcorder suffers from limited dynamic range. This paper describes our approach to generate high dynamic range (HDR) video from an image sequence of a dynamic scene captured while rapidly varying the exposure of each frame. Our approach consists of three parts: automatic exposure control during capture, HDR stitching across neighboring frames, and tonemapping for viewing. HDR stitching requires accurately registering neighboring frames and…

Real-time algorithms for high dynamic range video
TLDR
Algorithms for these steps that allow the creation of HDR video in real-time are covered that are robust to the large brightness difference between the images of an exposure sequence, and tone mapped to the displayable range of the output device.

TLDR
A new model called SGV is introduced which combines gain value and exposure settings and can be estimated from the intensities of frames and can also get a HDR panoramic image at the same time.
Patch-based high dynamic range video
TLDR
This work proposes a new approach for HDR reconstruction from alternating exposure video sequences that combines the advantages of optical flow and recently introduced patch-based synthesis for HDR images and results in a novel reconstruction algorithm that can produce high-quality HDR videos with a standard camera.
High-dynamic-range video for photometric measurement of illumination

This work presents a method based on Spatial Varying Exposure (SVE) system that is possible to create the HDR image for dynamic scene by trading-off spatial resolution.
High Dynamic Range Video through Fusion of Exposured-Controlled Frames
TLDR
The proposed method has the advantage of automatically selecting proper exposure times to make outputs more visible than fixed exposure ones, and reduces motion blur distortion caused by moving objects in output frames, by using the maskadjustment method which is simpler and faster than frame registration methods.

The results demonstrate that the method is capable of drastic dynamic range compression, while preserving fine details and avoiding common artifacts, such as halos, gradient reversals, or loss of local contrast.
Being `undigital' with digital cameras: extending dynamic range by combining differently exposed pictures
TLDR
This work proposes a means of combining diierently exposed pictures to obtain a single picture of extended dynamic range, and improved color delity, which works reliably with images from a digital camera of unknown response, or from a scanner with unknown response.

The end result is an imaging system that can measure a very wide range of scene radiance and produce a substantially larger number of brightness levels, with a slight reduction in spatial resolution.
Painting with looks: photographic images from video using quantimetric processing
TLDR
A new method of video image processing that exploits multiple differently exposed pictures (frames of the video sequence) of overlapping subject matter is thus possible and may be used whenever a video camera having automatic exposure captures multiple frames of video with the same subject matter appearing in regions of overlap between at least some of the successive video frames.

TLDR
A simple algorithm is described that computes the radiometric response function of an imaging system, from images of an arbitrary scene taken using different exposures, to fuse the multiple images into a single high dynamic range radiance image.

This paper addresses the stereo matching problem in the presence of reflections and translucency, where image formation can be modeled as the additive superposition of layers at different depth, using a spatial-temporal differencing technique.
