* Comparison of the cases with and without using the high
resolution HDR function of the VHX-5000
A high resolution image is obtained with single-wavelength light and the HDR (High Dynamic Range) function, that captures multiple images by varying the shutter speed, to produce a fine detail image. These two functions enable high resolution and high contrast

Optimal wavelength is selected according to the lens characteristics to ensure capturing of clear images that is less affected by chromatic aberration. Such high resolution observation is enabled by the automatic selection of optimal wavelength and pixel shift technology.
The camera captures multiple colour images at different brightness levels by varying the shutter speed, and then produces an image with high level gradation data. This allows clear observation of even targets with glare or with low colour gradation. An algorithm that faithfully represents the colours of the target makes observation more similar to that with the naked eye.
The narrow range of brightness levels causes glare in areas that are oversaturated.
Subtle changes in contrast cannot be rendered because of coarse resolutions.
Colours can be different between the observation with the naked eye and the captured image.
A wider range of brightness levels diminishes the perceived glare.
Enhances low contrast areas for improved detail.
Images can be captured in live colours similar to those seen with the naked eye.
