Paper Abstract

Using conventional camera to capture natural scenes with high dynamic range generally results in saturation as well as underexposure, because of their limited dynamic range. And moreover, the image of conventional RGB camera with RGB color filter lacks color accuracy. We present a promising solution - a high dynamic range multispectral camera placing a Liquid Crystal Tunable Filter (LCTF) between lens and gray level imaging sensor. For each bands, gray level images with different exposures are acquired separately and are combined into a multispectral high dynamic range image afterwards. The high dynamic range multispectral image has higher color accuracy and greater dynamic range than the images of the traditional RGB camera.
