Mystery Box has written a five-part blog series all about HDR video.

Part 1 covers what HDR video is while further installments discuss HDR video reference hardware, HDR video terms, how to shoot for HDR, and grading, mastering, and delivering HDR. 

They write, "HDR video is as much of a revolution and leap forward as the jump from analog standard definition, to digital 4K. Or, to put it far less clinically, it’s mind-blowingly, awesomesauce, revolutionarily, incredible!  If it doesn’t get you excited, I’m not sure why you’re reading this…So what is it about HDR video that makes it so special, so much better than what we’ve been doing?  That’s what we’re going to dive into here."
