A wide dynamic camera conjures images of an incredibly large (In a horizontal direction) camera, somewhat like an oversized wide-angle lens. However, that’s not what a wide dynamic camera is at all. In fact, some ultra-small hidden covert cameras are also wide dynamic cameras. So just exactly what is the wide dynamic range of a camera? Read on to find out.
A wide dynamic camera is actually a camera with a highly specialized function to assist the image capture process. When cameras possess the circuitry to support this function we say that they have Wide Dynamic Range or WDR.
