Watch: The world’s first very pretty HDR video

HDR photo

Using two Canon 5D Mark IIs (and doing a whole mess of technical shenanigans I don't quite understand), the guys at Soviet Montage have managed to film the world's first HDR video. Recently, we've seen more and more HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos and time-lapses, but this is the first successful video attempt. However, it certainly won't be the last — all signs point to this being the new trend in videography. But not really why I'm posting it. Mostly, it's just very, very pretty. If you're not impressed at first, skip ahead to the part where they film a person.
