Canon Files Patent Application to Expand Sensor DR
Canon has recently filed a patent application for a solution that would allow digital cameras to faithfully capture high-contrast scenes in a single take. Photography Bay reports that the patent application describes a process whereby different exposure times are assigned to different photosites on the sensor to ensure highlights are not blown out and shadows are not blocked up. If you are interested in the technical details, you can read the entire patent application online.
