Shot with two Canon 5D Mark II DSLRs and a beam splitter, Soviet Montage Productions shows just what is possible with consumer grade photography equipment. This equipment enabled “each camera to look at the exact same subject, to accomplish the effect.” Video after the break.

The cameras are configured so that they record different exposure values, e.g., one camera is overexposed, the other underexposed. After the footage has been recorded, we use a variety of HDR processing tools to combine the video from the two cameras, yielding the clips you see above.
